A caustic new comedy by one of Scotland's most important contemporary playwrights When Derek's girlfriend Kath decides to move in with him she follows the advice of her favourite chat-show host and asks to meet his family. Derek's mother is in a nursing home, resentful of June, the patient with no arms and legs, who gets all the attention. The only saving grace is her care assistant Larry - a camp, ageing clubber. However, what Derek and Kath don't know is that Larry holds the key to a few secrets that are perhaps best left in the closet...Published to coincide with its premiere in July 2001 at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh "Cut-cross dialogue crackles with life; fast, funny foulmouthed" (TES) "The dialogue cuts into paradox, swagger and self defence as keenly as a surgeon's knife" (Observer)
