Jill is expecting her first baby and she and her husband Ollie are desperate to find a home of their own for their new family… But HOW??
In this diabolically funny, vicious dark comedy a government department has found an ingenious solution to the twin dilemmas of housing shortage and homelessness. Be prepared to be appalled at yourself for laughing out loud at the horrors revealed in this wickedly funny play.
Home ownership is slipping out of reach: no matter how hard they work, it’s becoming more and more difficult for young people to buy a home of their own. Levels of homelessness are rising: more than 2,000 people a year will have no roof over their head and end up sleeping rough.
At a time of crisis in the housing market, how far would you be prepared to compromise your principals to secure a home for you and your family?
