The action takes place at Laura Stratton’s 54th birthday dinner with her husband, two sons and their other halves. Events unfold over a time scale of a couple of years ending in a full circle. There are new and familiar faces on stage with Charlotte Miller in her first big role after her show stopping debut in The Vicar of Dibley. Tom Edie and Clare Murray are also new to the

Players. They are joined by Keith Miller, Aisling Tigwell, Tom Millar, David Burchell and last but not least Peter Spencer adding a comic touch playing four waiters. All this is brought together by the director, Charlotte Eastes. The play was revived recently by the author himself to great acclaim.
