A Family Outing – 20 Years On

6 Feb 2020

Twenty years ago Ursula Martinez sat with her parents on a sofa for an hour and argued. Audiences and the media loved it! 

Since the ‘truly hilarious’ original, Martinez has turned 50, her father Arthur has passed away and her mother Mila can no longer remember her lines. This bracingly funny recreation blurs the lines of reality whilst grappling with who we are and what happens as we age. 

Wryly honest and frank conversation between mother and daughter who cajole and encourage each other through this endearingly ad hoc, entertaining and uplifting performance.

Age 12+

Co-produced with Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, Commissioned by Perth Festival, Barbican and SICK!
