From the creator of Rising Damp and Only When I Laugh...

It's a cold winter's evening and bitter, irascible divorcee Henry is enjoying a scotch and some classical music in glorious solitude. He is soon disturbed, however, by the unwelcome appearance of his son Matthew, bringing with him his new girlfriend, the unappealing punk/Goth Christine.

Matthew is obviously keen for a reconciliation with his father, but Henry is quite happy the way things are, and sparks soon fly - but this is just the beginning, for who should arrive next but Henry's ex-wife, Matthew's mother, Sue! As the cold night wears on Henry and Sue can't help but rake over the ashes of their seemingly dead relationship...

Father's Day is a warm and touching comedy based on Eric Chappell's hit TV series Home to Roost which starred John Thaw (aka Inspector Morse and Kavanagh QC).



Director Val Harris appeared on Tony Barker's Theatre Show on Canalside Community Radio (102.8FM) on Thursday 15th October.
