A dark but very funny comedy about the collapse of a family of feckless chancers and no-hopers.

Stewart Parker Award 2005
Edinburgh Fringe First

Eddie and his three sons work nights. It could be said that they’re a pretty dysfunctional family, but they don’t care because they don’t like each other very much. And when Eddie arranges for them all to pay a visit to their mother, the whole family starts to disintegrate in spectacular fashion.

‘hugely entertaining and utterly convincing – when writing is as good as Take Me Away you’re swept along’
The Irish Examiner


‘a cracker, at once wildly funny and desperately bleak’
Daily Telegraph

‘ferociously funny – go and see it, and laugh till it hurts’
The Times
