We’ve all been there – too much sun, alcohol and in-laws – but this family has an added stress: it’s one year on since a devastating tragedy. The audience are treated to a crackling two acts that take an honest and humorous look at issues not often acknowledged in families, such as the way we handle sex, death and each other. Various performances from March 7, tickets $15. Details here.
