Australian Premiere

Around this family’s table, conversation is a no-holds-barred struggle for attention. Sheer mayhem. Father, mother, brother and sister fling opinions, arguments and insults around and no one pays much attention to the damage it might cause. And no one pays much attention to Billy, the youngest son, watching it all in silence, not hearing a word but getting the message.

Tribal warfare. Nina Raine’s sharp-jabbing comedy about how families communicate keeps coming at you. Director Julian Meyrick returns to MTC to direct Alison Bell in a fresh interpretation of this UK hit.
