Tony and Jean, with their baby Cressida, visit their in-laws - Jean's religious mother, upset at the thought of no baptism for her grandchild, and Tony's mother, the real mother-in-law from hell.
Written by and starting Colin Welland, with Susan Jameson and Mona Bruce, this play takes place first in the car on the journey, and then in the house of Nana, Tony's mother. She wants Tony to have a night in drinking with the boys - but has Jean got other plans?
Beautifully observed and well acted, Say Goodnight To Your Grandma feels real, with characters we've all met. In the game playing of both Jean and her mother-in-law, we see grown women fighting for their turf
it's delightful and devastating.
