So, families... What's going on there?
DENISE: I’m pregnant, you uncaring insensitive bastard.
Don Wainwright is dying, and his family gather for his passing. But he lingers… and lingers… and lingers.
Don's family - his eldest daughter and two sons and their spouses, are not the closest, and this time in close proximity to each other allows some of their worst characteristics to emerge.
Nought But The Leg is a black comedy which looks at family dynamics, Hollywood, Buddhism, stress and scones.
Denise: the eldest daughter, early 40s, a psychologist.
Dave: an entomologist, her husband.
Andrew: the middle sibling, a restaurant owner.
Hyun: a teacher, and Buddhist, Andrew’s wife.
Colin: the little brother, a writer.
Lysette: a Hollywood actress, Colin’s wife.
Nought But The Leg had a reading by the Illawarra Performance Writers' Group on 23 April 2009.
