In Basildon

In Basildon, a new play by David Eldridge

Len's on his death bed and the family gather to say their final farewells. His sisters still aren't speaking after nearly 20 years, his nephew's trying for a baby -- and a bigger house, while his best mate Ken remembers 'Bas-vegas' when it was a village. As the spread is laid out and the ham sandwiches sit next to the wreaths, it's hard to see who's hungry and who's just greedy.

An epic family drama exploring inheritance and the myth of place.

Director Dominic Cooke
