A smart and funny new play about a family who have the world at their feet. Will they stamp all over it?
Gordon and Serena have worked hard to get where they are. He’s on the verge of a massive promotion at an energy giant. She’s preparing for a move into the house of their dreams. The family appear to be cooking on gas.
But behind their perfect front door, light bulbs are blowing, the drains keep blocking, and a phone inexplicably refuses to charge. Not to mention that daughter Rachel’s adored toy polar bear is nowhere to be found.
Hot on the heels of critically acclaimed work at the National Theatre (Dara, Liolà, Table) Tanya Ronder has been commissioned by the Bush Theatre to write this funny and surreal new family drama about the power of the individual in a world obscured by politics.
