ABOUT THE PLAY

Faced with a weekend family gathering, world-weary Stephen Febble does his best to be difficult. When his daughter, her dreary husband, their precocious teenage daughter and - not least – the dog come to stay for the weekend, it’s enough to make him reach for the whisky, and for the sarcasm. The climax arrives on Saturday night when his patient wife, Virginia, has laid on a dinner party, and their next door neighbours with their friend, a society chiropodist,come too!In his first stage play, “The Weekend”, Michael Palin takes a look at the funny sideof family values, which also has its darker side……
