Description

Is your family dysfunctional? Well, you haven’t met these fine folk. Two siblings organise their father’s wake but are not prepared for their family’s over-the-top personalities: the domineering aunt and her pushover boyfriend, the cousins who look curiously alike and good old uncle George. How will they make it through the night? A lovable British sitcom with heart and hilarity, about how we make exceptions for the ones we love. With football, innuendos and enough wine to start an argument, this is like watching good ol' British telly. But most importantly, what’s Auntie’s new boyfriend’s name again?

The best play about a wake I've ever seen. Very well paced, sharp comedy full of those beautifully awkward moments and sublime characters. A little gem tucked in the corner of a fab little venue.

Brilliant show! The cast held the audience's attention the whole show. Really funny with authentically emotional moments. The lead actress (playing Julia) was absolutely fantastic!
