Originally performed at TLT in 1994, this play is described as a bitter sweet comedy following the life and loves of a working class family during World War II. Personal relationships, troubles and joys suggest some reasons why the human race will continue to survive the perils of life.


Another TLT stalwart takes her seat in the director’s chair. Margaret Speakes puts her mark on this classic play in a way that only she can.
