The National Joke by Torben Betts on Thursday 18th - Saturday 20th October 2018

As three generations of an MP's family gather for a rare party to celebrate the solar eclipse,his wife is hoping for a lovely day with all her family around her. But the eclipse shines a light on tensions between the generations, class and political beliefs and Rupert, the MP, finds himself in the middle of a media storm.A fast moving, comedy with crackling dialogue and plenty of contemporary references.

Torben Betts has been compared to Alan Ayckbourn, who invited him to be resident dramatist at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough. The National Joke was first performed there in 2016.
