A riotous comedy about love, death and responsibility ...

For forty-something Hildy, political activism comes easier than dealing with the disorder of her family life - her druggie son, her philandering soon-to-be-ex husband, and her father, misbehaving in a hugely expensive retirement home

Then there's Shirley, Hildy's charismatic mother a former pop star with a fondness for booze who sets up camp in Hildy's spare room to belittle her from close range

By day, Hildy leads the City's cleaners in revolt against the bankers

But by night, she dreams of unsettling acts of violence

" ... full of idiosyncratic wit ... makes a strong case for politically committed women and the burdens placed on them" ~ Guardian

" ... a modern tragi-comedy that presents a bitter truth ... an evening that rarely leaves you more than a minute away from a cruel laugh or a stinging insight" ~ Telegraph
