Liverpool 2017 and Eve has being doing the maths her whole life but when the squeeze comes, how do you balance a life that doesn’t add up and a family that refuses to read the bottom line? A story of survival in turbulent times, what lengths would you go to put food on the table?
There are well choreographed sequences where the cast get to exercise their vocal talents, with the ever confident Laura Dos Santos taking on the role of Eve, the head of the Brennan family along with daughter Lisa played wonderfully by Emily Hughes. Pauline Daniels as the grandmother with early dementia touched many hearts with her performance and there are some lovely moments between her and Lisa. Completing the family is Danny played by Liam Tobin, who after losing his job tries desperately to keep his family together.
Up to date social commentary Lizzie Nunnery style, complete with original score and songs, this new piece of work looks at what current state we find the country and our own communities in. However it's not all doom and gloom as there are gaps of light in amongst the rain clouds and the play happily ends with a glimmer of hope for the Brennan family. Thought provoking and written with such passion that you can not help but be swept away with the plight of the Brennan family so relevant it is right now.
