This play is a change to the published production of Can't Play Won't Play.
Barry (Gary Heron) and Gen (Jan Sparkes) are a suburban
couple, who we discover in bed about to celebrate their 21st
Theirs is a life filled with the usual worries: (nearly) grownup kids, finances, elderly parents. Add in the insecurities we all have about growing older, together with the shifting power-balances of a long-term marriage - who’s the bread winner now?? What’s happened to fidelity?? - and you have a wry, funny, truthful play which combines the laughs with some points of connection for all of us.
This play was the source material for the successful sitcom starring Michael Williams and Gwen Taylor.
