BCP return to the Fringe with Mike Leigh's classic after two sell-out years with Alan Bennett and Alan Ayckbourn.

Angela: 'Oh it's funny. We were all getting married about the same time as you were... getting divorced!' 'Leighs play isn't simply about marriage and Essex, but also about the unhappy state of the realm' (The Guardian).
