A COMEDY for all ages will be showcased in Oldbury next month as Father’s Day heads to the Rep’s stage.

Oldbury Rep will perform the warm and touching comedy – based on Eric Chappell’s hit TV series ‘Home to Roost’ – from March 3 to 10.

The play tells the story of irascible divorcé Henry who is disturbed by the unwelcome appearance of his son Matthew, bringing with him his new girlfriend – the unappealing punk/goth Christine – and sparks soon fly.

But this is just the beginning, as who should arrive next but Henry’s ex-wife and Matthew’s mother, Sue.

As the cold night wears on Henry and Sue can’t help but rake over the ashes of their seemingly dead relationship. To their surprise the faint glow of a new tenderness develops between them and before long Henry is facing some important decisions.
