Les Dawson follows in the pantomime dame tradition by playing an outrageous old woman in the British premiere of a play by the leading Argentinian dramatist Roberto Cossa. Set in post-Falklands Buenos Aires - though the cast adopt Lancashire accents - it is a black farce about a family's desperate struggle to survive the effects of galloping inflation while trying to satisfy the voracious appetite of their selfish grandmother. The part has been traditionally associated with a leading male comic in productions around the world. This new adaptation is by Michael Hastings.
