Stuart Piper for Cole Kitchenn presents the World Premiere of

Hatched 'n' Dispatched

by Gemma Page and Michael Kirk


★★★★Daily Mail ★★★★ Public Reviews  ★★★★★ Jonathan Baz  ★★★★★ LondonTheatre


"A family gathering from hell - Gemma Page and Michael Kirk write with notable polish. Slapstick, sexual farce, pop nostalgia, cruel chauvinism: here is a nicely garish domestic fist-chewer. It's sharp entertainment...superbly acted by a cast that barely puts a lacquered eyebrow wrong."  
★★★★Daily Mail


"Its broad, blunt humour recalls John Godber, its raucous ripeness Jim Cartwright. There’s also a whiff of Mike Leigh in its snickering at social pretension. Kirk’s production is acted with verve."
The Times


"Wonderfully domineering work from Wendi Peters as a gorgon mother-in-law "
Evening Standard


The wonderful Wendy Morgan as the stoically tight-lipped widow in a veil and pill box hat


Diana Vickers is an amusingly obtuse but heart-warmingly devoted Susan
Official London Theatre


__ A mucky romp through the morals, memories and music of the 1950s.

You are invited to party... The Needham family have buried Uncle Arthur and christened Baby Clifford in a double booking at the church. As Dorothy-Mavis takes charge of preparations for the after-party, tensions erupt and toxic secrets threaten to destroy her family. But she is not a woman to let family love come between her and social respectability - whatever the cost.

Set in the industrial north of England, this black comedy takes place over one evening in early Autumn, 1959.

From the two-time Whatsonstage Award nominated Producer of New Boy and Lifecoach (Best New Comedy, 2009 & 2010).
