Synopsis


Dennis, about to turn forty, is desperately trying to escape!


Escape a middle-class existence he never imagined for himself.


Escape a housing estate he hates for its uniform blandness.


Escape his neighbours.


At the enforced birthday celebration he never wanted - with presents and guests he despises - he begins to crack and packs a rucksack!


However, his attempts to flee are somewhat hampered by his bumbling parents, a phantom gnome-decapitating vandal and the everlasting love for his vinyl collection.


Will he ever break free?


Filled with Willy Russell's (Blood Brothers, Educating Rita, Shirley Valentine) wonderful one-liners and perceptive characters this play is full of laughs and insight in equal measure.


This is a transfer from the UK's oldest Summer Weekly Rep Theatre - Frinton Summer Theatre.
