A Two Act Play by Thomas Neath

A black comedy play set in modern day, centres on lazy lay about Mike Patterson and how his life is turned upside down when his girlfriend’s Mother comes to stay.
With Mike’s girlfriend, ditzy Jenny Smythe, at the end of her tether with Mikes Laziness and his love for fast food, beer and betting, decides to have a short break away and demands that Mike changes his lifestyle by the time she returns. With no chance of Mike doing this of his own accord, Jenny’s posh Mother Cynthia Smythe comes to stay with Mike in an attempt to change his ways and it does not take long for the pair to start clashing! How will two very different personalities handle the pressure of living under the same roof? Just how far will Mike go to rid his life of Cynthia? Will Cynthia be able to change Mike for the better? And is Cynthia all that she seems?
So leave the washing up for the tenth day running, grab your favourite tipple, put your feet up and tuck into entertaining story that has a loveable mix of characters with great laughs from the start to the end!
