The Crompton family is at war. It’s Rafe Crompton, a tyrannical father who is the embodiment of Victorian values, versus his four children with very different ideas. They’re desperate to be part of the sixties as the decade begins to swing around them.
As tensions simmer, Mrs Daisy Crompton uses all her wiles to keep the family together. If that includes fiddling the housekeeping money when someone’s short of a bob or two, then so be it. Secrets are coming out of the woodwork fast and furious.
Funny and moving, Spring and Port Wine is as resonant today as when written in 1959.
We’re delighted that the show marks Joseph’s professional theatre debut!
