The local furniture business of Ayres and Graces is a role model. Close-knit, trustworthy, quality-controlled – a true British success story in the world of fitted kitchens and vanity units.
When founder Ken Ayres retires, honest son-in-law Jack is brought in as M.D. His managerial skills soon become put to unexpected uses when he realises that the “family” employees are less interested in profit margins than dodgy deals and nest-feathering. But that would mean that his own family was involved in fraud – and they would never do that… would they?
This is one of Ayckbourn’s masterpieces of uproarious theatre.
