Wednesday 15 March - Fix by Jess Sayer
Families hurt each other. That's what they do best.
Mum is washing pills down with vodka. Nana is cutting up the family photos. And Dad has done something unforgivable. When Grace discovers her husband is having an affair with her daughter, she must confront the truth and do what it takes to fix her family for their son. Intense, darkly comic, peppered with ferocious verbal duels and electrifying reveals, Fix explores the contemporary blended family and questions unconditional love.
Winner of the Playmarket Playwrights b425 Competition, 2011.
Directed by Kathy McRae. Performed by Claire Waldron, Christopher Brougham, Harriet Prebble, Hilary Norris and Sol Maxwell
