Richard Bean (author of the multiple award-winning sensation One Man, Two Guvnors) has relocated his outrageous black comedy to leafy, suburban Petersham.

The Robinsons have run a successful family business since the 1960s. They have a comfortable house and expensive cars in the drive. But things have changed; new products, more competition and a bigger market. At the end of the day though, it’s still all about cash and stock. For this is no ordinary family business – the Robinsons are drug dealers. As eldest son Sean takes over the reins, disturbing things are happening in the previously tranquil streets of Kingston and Richmond. The younger generation aren’t like their dad. And the police are getting interested!

Much-loved actor and director Richard Wilson directs an amazing cast: Keith Allen, well known for The Comic Strip Presents…, Bodies and as Sheriff of Nottingham in the BBC’s Robin Hood, and Denise Welch, familiar to everyone from her appearances in Waterloo Road and Coronation Street, the recent tour of Steel Magnolias, and winner of the MEN Best Actress award for The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, are the reprobate parents. Their troublesome offspring will be played by Harry Melling (Dudley Dursley in the Harry Potter films), Kate Lamb and Matthew Wilson.

Contains very bad language and immature adults behaving irresponsibly. No letters of complaint please, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!
