About the Production:
Isaac has come home from the blood and horror of a foreign war to look after his sick Dad, only to find a family home that looks like a bomb has gone off. And, in a way, that’s just what’s happened. It turns out his younger sibling is transgender, his Mum isn’t under the thumb of her domineering husband any more, and they’re going to smash the Patriarchy to smithereens.
But in this absurd comedy, blowing up the past doesn’t necessarily set you free.
Come and watch Helen Thomson go to town in a cracker of a leading role in what seems to be a conventional play but is actually almost a vaudeville – of America, war, money, gender. You’ll see all those things differently by the time we’re through. It’s also hilarious. – Eamon
