The Monster in the Hall by David Greig follows a day in the life of Duck Macatarsney as she cares for her dope-smoking biker father who suffers from multiple sclerosis. Duck is anxiously awaiting a visit from social services to check up on them and is terrified she will be taken into care. Worst of all, Duck’s dad has woken up this morning completely blind. This hilarious ensemble performance uses larger-than-life characters to show the challenges of young carers in a way that is simultaneously touching and hysterical.
