Three generations of the dysfunctional Coleman family live under one roof on the verge of chaos, held in check by their matriarchal grandmother. But how will the family cope when their linchpin is removed?

Claudio Tolcachir is an infl uential Argentinian theatre-maker who was recognised as The Outstanding Personality of Culture in 2012 by the Legislature of Buenos Aires.

Laurence Boswell is the Olivier Award-winning Artistic Director of the Ustinov Studio whose recent hugely acclaimed productions include The Whale, The Mentor and Trouble in Mind.
