Nasty Neighbours


Debbie Isitt

Directed by: Frank Kirkham

21st, 24th - 28th Oct 1995

Black comedy examining the stresses and strains of modern life in the 1990ís, Nasty Neighbours bursts into life following the emigration of Mr and Mrs Peachís neighbours the Hodges to Australia. The grieving Peaches anxiously twitch behind the net curtains at their semi-detached home wondering who will arrive next door to take their place. But Mr and Mrs Chapman prove to be far from the ideal couple the Peaches had dreamed of. The Chapmans are rude, loud and aggressive, and with growing frustration Mr Peach embarks on a massive feud with his new neighbours. The problems escalate out of all proportion, even including the harassment of his old neighbours on the other side of the world. It isnít long before all three couples are tearing each other apart

Originally performed the same week by over 100 societies as part of the 1995 BT Biennial season.
