Bleeding with Mother

Bleeding with Mother

Ortonesque farce of family, money and mortality set in the front room of a Manchester working class home the night before a funeral.

Domineering mum Sal lies in state before her family perpetually panic-struck son Randall and his down-trodden brow-beaten sister Carol.

The squabbling siblings are joined by sick note Sheila the nosey neighbour and her hen-pecked husband a decidedly drunken Doug.

All four are coming to terms with grief but also trying to get their hands on Sal's secret treasure trove located below the floorboards under the coffin.
