The Giles family is inviting you for dinner. It’s a tradition, one they’ve had for ages. The beast is fattened and ready for the slaughter. Father’s on carving duty. Mother is on vegetables. Squabbling sisters Courtney and Diane are whipping dessert into a frenzy. Son-in-law Francois is in charge of looking good while prodigal son Anthony just wants everyone to bugger right off. Granddaughter Tamsin wants her desires satisfied and she wants them satisfied now. And then there’s adopted son Rupert, waiting patiently to be invited to the table. Yep, it’s a real gathering of the clan.

Love, sibling rivalry and very sharp knives. Riffing on the seven deadly sins, playwright Thomas Sainsbury has created a wicked and wild satire which totally skewers traditional Kiwi family values.

This is a total brouhaha, brought to life by two of our most brilliantly funny actors. Expect physical mayhem and gastronomic whiplash. Delectable.
