A comic tale of housebound duo

THE Reform Theatre Company will be performing Nick Lane’s play Housebound in the Darwin Suite at Derby’s Assembly Rooms on Wednesday, October 12, from 7.45pm.

Jim is fat, 58, and fed with everything. He makes Victor Meldrew look like an amateur, and doesn’t his wife Lucy know it?

Stuck at home with him rabbiting on every day since his retirement, and nowhere to escape to, she’s housebound.

Every day is starting to blend into the next, until one Halloween, when a rash act changes everything.

This is a comedy for everyone who ever felt frustrated but didn’t know what to do about it.

Nick Lane is the writer of Hull Truck theatre company hits My Favourite Summer and Me And My Dad.

Tickets are £12 (£10 concessions) and are available by calling the box office on 01332 255800.
