Genre: Comedy

Author: Perry, David

A macabre comedy set in the suburban home of the Pimbles, who live in the shadow of imminent catastrophe. While Grandpa toils in the cellar on his corpses, the normal life of the family goes on from one fatality to the next. The imperturbable Mrs Pimble’s firm maternal management of affairs is one of the things which remain strong in this grotesque family situation.

Available in Playbill Two, a collection of one-act plays published by Hutchinson.
