A cracking new play Outstanding performances... A splendidly funny and often downright raucous comedy - a kind of Abigail’s Party for the metropolitan, multicultural 21st century. A provocative and entertaining evening, directed by Jez Bond with the confidence of a man who knows he is on to a winner.

"Remember ‘Clybourne Park’ – Bruce Norris’s uncomfortably hilarious West End hit about racial tension and class snobbery in Chicago? Well, Sarah Rutherford’s written the London equivalent.... Fiercely funny stuff!"

DAILY MAIL ★ ★ ★ ★

"A tangy satire… an English answer to Yasmina Reza’s God Of Carnage… a sparky, modern, well-acted, highly watchable show… Rutherford is a fresh voice."


"...had myself and everyone else in the audience engrossed and laughing from start to finish … a fully deserved standing ovation."

US election night 2008. A smart inner-London 'village'. For white ex-lawyer Natasha, adoptive mother to two Ethiopian children, tonight is the ideal opportunity to get to know the small handful of other 'mothers of children of colour' at their smart private school. But as the Obamatinis start to flow, the middle-class veneer begins to crack and Natasha's carefully-planned social occasion quickly unravels. Lifting the lid on a stew of racial tensions and social embarrassments, this is a hilarious, provocative and brilliantly insightful look at the new 'Beige Britain'.
