The Connaught Cinema, Worthing shows a live recording from the National Theatre of Alan Ayckbourn’s A Small Family Business at 7.30 pm tomorrow night (Tuesday July 22nd).
A Small Family Business is a riotous exposure of entrepreneurial greed by Olivier Award-winning playwright Alan Ayckbourn (Bedroom Farce, A Chorus of Disapproval). The play returns to the National Theatre for the first time since its celebrated premiere in 1987, when it won the Evening Standard Award for Best New Play.
Jack McCracken: a man of principle in a corrupt world. But not for long. Moments after taking over his father-in-law’s business he’s approached by a private detective armed with some compromising information. Jack’s integrity fades away as he discovers his extended family to be thieves and adulterers, looting the business from their suburban homes. Rampant self-interest takes over and comic hysteria builds to a macabre climax.
Tickets are priced at £14.50 with concessions £2.00 discount and Friends £3.00 discount.
The Connaught Cinema is at 3 Union Place, Worthing.
