This is a play that lifts the lid on a darkly comic family get-together. Mike and Julia made sure their children Rob and Stacey had the best of everything when they were growing up. Now they're adults all they want is to be proud of them. But when they meet up in a Lake District holiday cottage to celebrate Stacey's birthday, it seems that nobody has been honest with each other. With a brilliant ear for dialogue, playwright Chloe Moss wickedly captures the infuriating family habits and conversations that can drive you mad. The bid to keep up appearances in front of an unexpected guest soon falls by the wayside as secrets are revealed and the 'get together' falls apart, in this painfully funny play. World premiere at Manchester's Royal Exchange theatre, February 2012.
