Overview

When family members die, or are lost to dementia, all we tend to say about them is that they were wonderful. But if that is all you can say about them, you may as well say nothing: to truly remember our loved ones, you have to call up their weirdnesses, their madnesses, their flaws. Because the dead, despite what we may think, are not angels.

Back by popular demand following a critically-acclaimed West End run and sold out residency at the Menier Chocolate Factory, My Family: Not the Sitcom is a massively disrespectful celebration of the lives of David Baddiel’s late mother, Sarah, and dementia-ridden father, Colin. It’s a show about memory, ageing, infidelity, dysfunctional relatives, moral policing on social media, and gay cats. Come and be offended on David’s behalf for the final time in the West End.

*Contains explicit language. Not suitable for children under the age of 16 years.

Critic reviews

Baddiel launches himself into the Louis CK league of no-holds-barred comedy

· Metro

Hugely funny…If you’re going to disrespect the dead and the incapacitated, do it like this: truthfully, inventively and, finally, lovingly.

· The Times

Compelling to watch both for its unvarnished truth and complicated affection

· Guardian
