“We have a position in society, Mister … an’ I don’t mean just black society.”

In 1970s Philadelphia, the Harrisons are the most respectable middle-class Black family in the suburbs.

However, the arrival of their young niece and her radical ideas from the rural South turns their polite, Christian life on its head.

The Cosby Show meets Restoration Comedy in this hilariously outrageous play about how hard we try to hide who we really are.

Suitable for ages 12+

On Tuesday 22 January, the performance will be followed by a Q&A with members of the cast and director Dawn Walton.
