MsFITS THEATRE: Stick Granny on the Roof Rack
One-woman comedy drama written by multi-award winning, BAFTA nominated playwright Rona Munro and performed by award winning comedy actress Fiona Knowles.
The good news: Marie’s won the “Holiday of a Lifetime” on a scratch card. The bad news: it’s “for all the family!” Specifically, Katy (a teenager with attitude), Graham (once the love of Marie’s life, now 15 years past his sell-by date) and…his Mum. It’s a once in a lifetime experience all right, one that will change their lives.
Take one everyday family, heat to 36 degrees, leave in a hire car to cook, then stand back as years of family tensions boil over in a hilarious mix of laughter and tears.
What is Katy’s secret? Why does Mum end up behind bars? And who stole Gran?
Fiona Knowles -- the extraordinary, one-woman performer behind Sex & Chocolate, Women on the Verge of a T-Junction, Fur Coat & Magic Knickers, Women Behaving Madly and Mad Bad & Dangerous to Know -- returns to the Sunart Centre once again to take you on a comic, compassionate catastrophe of family relationships.
