11th Nov - 3rd 2022
A family packs into a small house with a tangled history. Matt is here, yearning to reach someone he’s lost. His cousin Jess is here, too; she just wants to feel something. Anything. And Aunt Monica and Jeff are still here, just about. Together, ferocious and funny, they laugh, they scrap, they remember.
Tonight these four people, inextricably bound yet so far apart, will finally confront the old decisions that haunt them. How does a family make a future, when everything that holds it together lies in the past?
Clive Judd’s debut play won the 2022 Papatango Prize from a record 1,553 scripts. Here is a tender, funny and utterly truthful story about family and feeling. Heralding a remarkable new talent, it follows previous Papatango Prize discoveries which have gone on to win Olivier, Critics’ Circle and OffWestEnd Awards and premiere worldwide.
