The Anniversary – by Bill Macilwraith


Since Dad thankfully died, Mum has carried on his builders’ business and the profits have increased two hundred and fifty per cent. As Tom, her youngest son says; “We must be the only builders putting up condemned property.” Mum keeps a tight hold on all her three sons, binding them to her with gifts, threats and ruthless exploitation of their weaknesses. But as the family is unwillingly brought together to celebrate Mum’s wedding anniversary (regardless of deceased Dad), revolt is in the air. One son gathers the courage to tell Mum he is taking his wife and family to Canada; Tom breaks the news of his impending marriage. Mum fights back with every weapon in her formidable armoury, but her long ascendancy is broken at last. 19th – 26th November 2016

(No performance Sunday night)
