Martin, a budding novelist and would be stand-up comic invites his parents away for the weekend. He may be over 30, divorced and have children but to them he is still the seven year old who picked his nose in the nativity play.

Martin believes his parents are totally embarrassing; his Dad won't eat after 7 'cause he gets wind, his Mum thinks her ears will bleed if she gets too much fresh air... and they both do the 'slosh' in public! Martin may harbour socialist and humanitarian ideals but his parents are driving him to murderous distraction. Will he or won't he, that is the question.

With his unique, incisive humour, Godber shows a mastery of capturing the awkwardness of a family with not just a generation gap but a class divide as well, since Martin - the son of a miner - has married into the refined southern bourgeoisie... exactly the kind of people, in fact, who would drip condescension about Godber plays. As stoical, long-suffering father Len (Roger Cook) and incessantly complaining mother Joan (Debbie Kelly) demonstrate their love of Martin (Michael Brooksbank) by driving him to distraction with their banality, nit-picking and repetition, he decides to kill them - only to be pre-empted by Joan's heart attack.

Author John Godber was born the son of a miner in Upton, West Yorkshire. He trained as a teacher of drama at Bretton Hall College. He has won five Edinburgh Fringe First Awards and in 1984 won the Laurence Olivier Comedy of the Year Award for UP 'n' UNDER.

Don't forget we have a bar with excellent very reasonably priced wine, beer and soft drinks.
