The play opened at the Gielgud Theatre 2 Feb 2009, following previews from 27 Jan to moderate notices from the popular press: THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Extraordinary, expressionistic comedy...an unusual pleasure" THE TIMES says, "I didn't really enjoy Enjoy." THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "Often wonderfully funny." THE GUARDIAN says, "Comic but curiously untroubling."
Directed by Christopher Luscombe , the cast includes Alison Steadman , David Troughton, Carol Macready, Josie Walker, Richard Glaves.
Set in Leeds and focuses on an ageing couple, Wilf and Connie, living in the city’s last back-to-back. With the demolition of the area in progress, they are soon to be re-housed in a new maisonette with a waste disposal unit and non-slip vinyl flooring! When a sociologist comes to observe them in their daily life, normality takes a decidedly atypical turn.
