A drama of grown men and women
didi-5 from United Kingdom
23 January 2010
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.
