Dennis, about to turn 35, is desperately trying to escape! Escape a middle-class existence he never imagined for himself. Escape a housing estate he hates for its uniform blandness. Escape his neighbours. At the enforced birthday celebration he never wanted – with presents and guests he despises – he begins to crack and packs a rucksack! However, his attempts to flee are somewhat hampered by his bumbling parents, a phantom gnome-decapitating vandal and the everlasting love for his vinyl collection. Will he ever break free? Filled with Willy Russell’s (Blood Brothers, Shirley Valentine) wonderful one-liners and perceptive characters this play is full of laughs and insight in equal measure.
