Join us for an hilarious and biting slice of family life laid bare by the imminent passing of the “bombastic but adorable” patriarch, Ron Patterson.

Playwright, Elizabeth Coleman (Secret Bridesmaids Business) is one of Australia's finest writers. Her observations of a “typical” Australian family and all that comes with sibling rivalry is hysterically captured in her endearing but flawed characters and her wincingly funny one liners.
