"Now we’re leaving… all the skeletons are suddenly jumping out of their cupboards."

A moving-in day, 1952.
A birthday party, 1992.
A moving-out day, 2022.

Join RAF veteran John and housewife Peggy as they proudly move into the first home they can really call their own; daughter Sandra, frantically negotiating the challenges of a 10-year-old’s birthday party without her AWOL husband; and grandaughter Alison, finally escaping the house she has somewhat unwillingly inherited.

Alan Ayckbourn’s new play tenderly chronicles the trials, tribulations and temptations of three generations of one family across 70 years in the same home.
