Every family has a dark underbelly. Especially the perfect ones.

On a regular Sunday morning, Walt sits in his sunny suburban kitchen while wife Barb makes him breakfast. It’s not long before the mundane descends into madness.

Award-winning US playwright, Mary Laws, exposes the darker side of happily ever after in the UK premiere of this cutting, absurdly funny, twisted tragedy.

Starring Gala Gordon (Three Sisters; Young Vic, The Blinding Light; Jermyn Street Theatre and The Crown), Gareth David-Lloyd (Three Women and a Piano Tuner; Hampstead Theatre; Torchwood, Holby City and Waterloo Road), Adrianna Bertola (Matilda and Charlie & The Chocolate Factory; West End) and Matt Barkley (Gangsta Granny; West End).

Mary Laws’ plays include Bird Fire Fly, Wonderful, The Drive, What A Very Pretty Pageant!, Stand (an autumn play), The Trapeze Artist and This. As a screenwriter, her credits include AMC’s  TV series Preacher and The Neon Demon.

Captioned performance: Tue 12 Jun
