By the writer of Billy Elliot, Lee Hall’s anarchic play is by turns camp, comic horrific, and in-your-face, a tragic farce about child abuse, wife abuse, sex, loss and cooking.

The comedy centres on Mam, a forty something English teacher, who likes a drink, and who has begun a relationship with Stuart, a twenty six year old baker, who likes to talk about his Christmas puddings. As the relationship gets more serious, Stuart gets to meet Mam's family: Jill, Mam’s fourteen year old daughter, a bit of a food obsessive, and Dad, an Elvis Presley impersonator before being paralysed in a car crash. Definitely not for children or those of a sensitive disposition!
