This coming production at Marloo Theatre is a black comedy where the family matriarch binds her 3 sons to her with gifts, threats & ruthless expoitation of their weaknesses. The show sees revolt in the air as they come to celebrate their parents' wedding aniversary (despite dad being dead).
One son gathers the courage to tell his mother that he is taking his wife and children to Canada, while another breaks the news of his impending marriage.
Mum fights back with every weapon in her formidable armoury, but will her long ascendancy be broken at last?
