Smack Family Robinson

Richard Bean

PaperBack (20 May 2003)

‘Doesn’t smoke. Doesn’t drink. Doesn’t do drugs. I’m worried about her, she’s not normal.’

‘It’s the modern world. You can’t judge kids by your own standards.’

Things have changed since Dad set up the family business in the 60s: new products, more competition, and a bigger market. At the end of the day though, it’s still all about cash and stock. But this is no ordinary family business – the Robinsons are drug dealers.

‘This is boisterous, knowingly ludicrous entertainment in the tradition of Joe Orton — a sharp-edged blend of the funny and the nasty.’ Evening Standard

‘uproarious’ Independent

‘[a] blackly comic script…littered with memorable lines’ What’s On Stage
