'I should have kept my mouth shut, I should have said nothing.'

Eddie’s a handyman, Doreen keeps a clean house, John’s got a new hat and Paul’s back from college — but the Jacksons are living under siege. Sudden violence blows open their lives in the latest darkly comic play from Simon Bent, whose other acclaimed work includes Sugar Sugar, Bad Company and Goldhawk Road.
