The Original Theatre Company, The Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds and Ghostlight Productions
By Torben Betts
Directed by Stephen Darcy
Original direction by Christopher Harper
With the recession biting hard, Emily and Oliver have decided to downsize and shift their middle- class London lifestyle to a small town in the north of England.
When they open their doors and invite next-door neighbours, Dawn and Alan, round for an evening of olives, anchovies, Karl Marx and abstract art; class and culture collide, and the consequences of their disastrous evening are as tragic as they are hilarious.
From one of the most exciting playwrights to emerge since Alan Ayckbourn, Torben Betts, and produced by the award-winning Original Theatre Company (Birdsong, Three Men In A Boat), comes this riotously funny production.
