“A fascinatingly idiosyncratic piece: one that exposes reflex racism and sibling sexuality in English family life in the absurdist style of Ionesco or NF Simpson.” –Guardian
“Nick Gill’s black comedy is a demented rummage around the more psychotic elements of the English psyche, via the microcosm of the model family… brazenly ludicrous and laugh-out-loud funny.” –Time Out London

"You might at least say thank you, Jenny. I’ve been out digging a hole for your boyfriend all night. Not to mention severing his legs. Have you ever severed a leg? It’s not as easy as it looks. Not with a blunt spade."
Jane is a housewife. James sells guns. They live in one of the larger cities in Our Country and are both terrified of ethnic youths who might well be wearing hoods and carrying knives, or something.
