In Basildon was performed from Monday 01 – Saturday 06 July 2013 at Beckenham Theatre.
“People always get the wrong idea about Essex, don’t they?”
Len’s on his deathbed and the family gather to say their final farewells. His sisters still aren’t speaking after twenty years, his nephew’s trying for a baby – and a bigger house, while his best mate, Ken, remembers ‘Bas-vegas’ when it was a village. As the spread is laid out and the ham sandwiches sit next to the wreaths, it’s hard to see who’s hungry and who’s just greedy.
In Basildon was first presented at the Royal Court Theatre, London in February 2012. This will be the first amateur production of the play.
