Keeping Tom Nice

8th August to 10th August 2019

Tom is approaching his twenty fifth birthday. He is severely handicapped and in spite of growing intervention from the social services he has lived in the care of his parents Doug and Winnie and sister Charlie, who have devoted their lives to him. Tom’s family has coped with the unrelenting strain of maintaining social appearances while caring for his every need but with the arrival of Stephen, a new case worker with a particular insight into Tom’s circumstances, the family is pushed to the breaking point in this rich and compelling examination of a family disintegrating under the pressures of an increasingly complex world.

Performed in the Studio Bar and directed by Emrys Babb.
