Written and directed by Alan Ayckbourn
World premiere production, following its New York run.

"the police are hanging on by a whisker…by that much…It’s not just here, mark you. It’s nationwide. One breath of wind - anarchy!"

Things are not right on The Bluebell Hill Development. Theft, petty crime, vandalism, all the ills of modern suburban existence are on the increase.

Newcomers Martin and his sister Hilda are the crime wave’s latest victims and resolve to take action. After all, the law of the land, all that's right and proper and even God Himself are surely on their side. But what starts out as a well intentioned neighbourhood watch scheme soon develops into something altogether more sinister.

Alan Ayckbourn's hilarious cautionary tale of the dangers of taking the law into your own hands is his seventy fifth play.

Cast includes Eileen Battye, Terence Booth, Phil Cheadle, Matthew Cottle, Richard Derrington, Frances Grey, Amy Loughton, Alexandra Mathie.
