A Small Family Business runs in rep at the National Theatre, Olivier until 27 August 2014

Nigel Lindsay and Debra GillettAlan Ayckbourn’s A Small Family Business, a riotous exposure of entrepreneurial greed, returns to the National where it premiered in 1987.

What if all your in-laws are outlaws?

Jack McCracken: a man of principle in a corrupt world. But not for long. Moments after taking over his father-in-law’s business he’s approached by a private detective armed with some compromising information. Jack’s integrity fades away as he discovers his extended family to be thieves and adulterers, looting the business from their suburban homes. Rampant self-interest takes over and comic hysteria builds to a macabre climax.

Family Values: A Small Family Business

Stars Nigel Lindsay and Debra Gillett, playing Jack and Poppy, discuss the husband/wife relationship at the heart of A Small Family Business.

Chaired by Terri Paddock.
