Welcome to the Criminal Blunder World

At the mention of a family of criminal masterminds, what's the first thing that pops into your head? The Godfather? The Sopranos, perhaps? Undoubtedly you'll have an image of some kind of Italian-American mafia. What you probably won't think of is a a kindred of loud-mouthed Essex folk.

Perhaps I am being a bit misleading though; the Packer's are hardly masterminds. They're dysfunctional, blundering, and one of them has been locked up for the last seven years.

Finally released from the slammer, Algie Packer goes home, wondering what to do with his stolen 3.5 million stash. But not everything is as simple as it sounds. Algie's family are hiding something from him. Something big. They might even have to go on the run.

Barking in Essex is a brand new comedy by Clive Exton that has just open at Wyndham's Theatre. Tickets are between 22.50-52.50, and it stars Lee Evans, Sheila Hancock, Keeley Hawes, Karl Johnson, and Montserrat Lombard. The production runs until the 4th January 2014.
