'We're not having a discussion,
we're having a barbeque'

Torben Betts is "an uncommonly talented playwright" (Time Out) with "a profound and highly original theatrical voice" (Daily Telegraph).

Mummies and Daddies offers a brutal (yet hilarious) insight into the soullessness of consumerism as a group of young professionals gather to celebrate the final summer of the twentieth century. The evening is disrupted but enlivened by the undercurrent of violent disappointment between the warring host couple, the casual abuse of alcohol and drugs, and the imposition of a Phil Collins soundtrack. What hopes do we have for the twenty-first century, if we can't even be civil to the ones we love? What will we be worth if our friends can be bought and sold? And what will our children be like if parenthood becomes just a game of Mummies and Daddies? Torben Betts is an award-winning writer, his works are published by Oberon Books and he has had recent productions at The Arcola Theatre (The Unconquered) and Riverside Studios (The Lunatic Queen).
