The Fratssen family is celebrating because Robert has shrunk and it’s better like that!
All long-forgotten aunties, aged uncles, and all family members by marriage may come and see the result (with measuring tape in hand).
The Fratssen Family dramatises the joys and woes of the family celebration and serves the audience a buffet of unspoken feuds and well meaning motherly love.
However, don’t expect a diet of classic inheritance discussions, divorce troubles, and family problems. This production gives those clichés a miss. The items which take centre stage are absurd matters and seeming trivia. Below those things lurk the unspoken values, perceptible tensions, and grandiose emotions which every person and family bears.
A both connecting and alienating theatre-performance in situ for all ages, yes, really, for all ages. Everyone is welcome, with or without the family!
