The Weekend

13 JUL – 28 JUL 2018

Written by  /  Michael Palin
Directed by  /  Dexter Bourke

Written by one of the founding members of Monty Python, The Weekend is a dark comedy about family meltdown – poignant, yet bound to keep you laughing.

Stephen Febble is a middle-aged Englishman who wants nothing more than to be left alone. Instead, to his horror,his long-suffering wife Virginia fills the house with guests.

When their daughter, her dreary husband Alan, their precocious child and – not least – the dog come to stayfor the weekend, world-weary Stephen does his bestto be difficult. But, this Saturday night, Stephen’s lifeis about to be suddenly and utterly changed…

Bursting with familiar-feeling characters we all know and love to hate, this show is jam-packed with the laugh-out- loud delights of family dysfunction. Escape the winterand warm up with Encore’s prime-time-comedy for 2018!
