Clive Exton's Essex-set crime caper receives its posthumous premiere at Wyndham's Theatre, starring Lee Evans and Sheila Hancock
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Welcome to the criminal blunder-world! Freedom finally beckons for delinquent villain Algie Packer. He's done seven years inside and now he's coming home to spend his carefully stashed cash - £3.5 million in untraceable notes. But there's something Algie's family has forgotten to mention... Meet the Packers - just your perfectly average, totally dysfunctional, 'well-dodgy' Essex crime family with a BIG problem. Are they going to be able to cover their tracks before Algie arrives home? Maybe it's time to go on the run...
The play contains bad language and is suitable for ages 16+
