A Small Family Business at the National Theatre

National Theatre - Olivier Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Nigel Lindsay stars in Alan Ayckbourn’s comedy A Small Family Business at the National Theatre.

Alan Ayckbourn’s riotous comedy about greed makes a welcome return to the National directed by Adam Penford.

Nigel Lindsay stars as Jack McCracken, a man of principle in a corrupt world – that is until a private detective presents him with compromising information about his father-in-law’s business.

As Jack’s extended family become embroiled in a scandal that exposes them as thieves and adulterers, integrity is abandoned and self-interest comes to the fore – with hilarious results.

Nigel Lindsay’s credits at the National Theatre include The Pillowman, The London Cuckolds, Blue Remembered Hills and Dealer’s Choice. Other stage credits include Shrek The Musical and RSC’s Richard II.

Other cast includes Debra Gillett, Gawn Grainger, Amanda Hadingue, Amy Marston, Gerard Monaco, Samuel Taylor and Niky Wardley.
