A story set on a wedding day where the bride is not centre stage in fact is only on stage for 2minutes at the end of the show. It is the Mother of the Groom that is the centre. She has retreated to the attic on her son’s wedding day wearing her wedding outfit; but would she really have clambered up to the attic in heels? She is feeling unsettled as the wedding marks her son leaving home and moving to Milton Keynes where his bride has a new job, leaving her with her husband who she feels she is not appreciated by.
An initial monologue by the Mum played ably by Liza Goddard is interrupted by first her son (again strong acting) and then her husband.
The dialogue as you would expect for dialogue written by Kay Mellor is amusing. The second half becomes, not wishing to spoil it, less static. Not a deep play but an enjoyable light hearted 95minutes with interval entertainment.
