Moss Side, 1974. Lauren has returned for Christmas dinner, but her parents aren't too impressed with her past or her future. Read More >

Moss Side, 1974: Lauren has returned home for a festive Christmas dinner, but she has no intention of staying. She can do her exams because they’ve found her a place with a crèche. Dad is not impressed; he thinks she should stay at home. Mum just thinks she should have kept her legs shut in the first place.

Linda Brogan’s new play was developed while on a residency at the Contact. Brogan, who won the Alfred Fagon Award in 2001, has previously written Basil And Beattie, Clean Break and Contact.

Paulette Randall, who directs the production, has previously directed Blest Be The Tie at the Royal Court. Her many other credits include King Hedley II, Two Trains and Up Against The Wall at the Tricycle theatre, and Urban Afro Saxons at the Theatre Royal Stratford East.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
