If you can't go to the National Theatre in London, catch one of their productions -- like A Small Family Business -- streaming live to the big screen at Irvine Barclay Theatre. Penned by Olivier Award-winning playwright Alan Ayckbourn (Bedroom Farce, A Chorus of Disapproval), A Small Family Business premiered at the National Theatre in 1987 and scored the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Play. Jack McCracken's a man of principle in a corrupt world ... until he takes over his father-in-law's business. Soon after, a private detective armed with some compromising information approaches him, and Jack's integrity fades away as he discovers there are a few too many thieves and adulterers in his extended family.

What a nice surprise this event turned out to be. My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed the show and were very impressed at how talented both entertainers were. Also there was no hassle in picking up our tickets which made for an easy entrance.
Quotes & Highlights
Just nominated by the New York critics for a Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience
!“Endearingly Chaplinesque.” —Newsday
“A must see show…nothing but fabulous.” —The Daily Gazette
Jamie Adkins has a great idea for a show – he just doesn’t quite know what it is. Every crumpled-up sheet of paper he tosses away only makes this rubber-faced clown more determined to get his creation down on paper. Then one of those balls of paper bounces right back at him! This turn of events finally coaxes the Chaplinesque playwright away from his typewriter and what ensues is a non-stop barrage of hilarious escapades and amazing feats of silliness. Egged on by the melodies of a roving musician-comedian, Anne-Marie Levasseur, Jamie holds on for dear life at the top of a splitting ladder, wrestles with his own bulbous red nose, and flips and somersaults across a slack wire. A former member of Montreal’s highly-regarded Cirque Eloize and the Pickle Family Circus, Jamie brings impeccable timing and boundless wit to a show in which fun is spelled “T-y-p-o.”
Recommended for all ages.
