By Torben Betts
Directed by Stephen Darcy
Original direction by Chris 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.
One night they open their doors and invite next door neighbours, Dawn and Alan into their home.
Over the course of a disastrous evening of olives, anchovies, Karl Marx and abstract art; class and culture collide where the consequences 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.
