The Anniversary

by Bill MacIlwraith

directed by Jerry Lyne

Mum's the matriarch whose possessiveness is a killer, like the Devil, Mum has undeniable charm. She controls her boys with gifts, threats and exploitation of their weaknesses. The family unwillingly join for the celebration of Mum's wedding anniversary (despite Dad's death). Revolt is in the air. Karen's persuaded Terry & kids to get away to Canada. Tom's off with pregnant girlfriend Shirley, Henry's lost in a world of dodgy sexual fantasies. What's Mum's reaction?

This moving black comedy, set in the 60's, will have you laughing, seething, squirming and crying.
