production information

There are no miracles in this world. Only those we make for ourselves.

It’s 8am and a revolt is underway.

The father is dying. The son is spying. The wife is cheating. The uncle is stealing. The mother is scheming. The dynasty is crumbling. 

One house. One fortune. One victor. 

Tinuke Craig (Genesis Future Directors Award, Random/Generations) makes her Almeida debut with a new production of Maxim Gorky’s savagely funny play, adapted by multi award-winning playwright Mike Bartlett (Albion, King Charles III).
