In the style of classic Aussie laugh-out-loud comedies Kath & Kim and The Castle comes this gloriously dysfunctional family show starring Jane Clifton (Prisoner) and Roger Oakley (Home and Away).
Spencer tells the story of a tight-knit family led by single-mum and matriarch Marilyn and her three adult children – wayward daughter Jules, mouthy coulda-been Ben and AFL player and golden-boy Scott.
About to meet the young son – Spencer – he never knew he had, Scott and the family have returned home to help mark the occasion. With the surprise appearance of the father they barely remember, the entire family is forced to work together to clean up both the house and their own fractured relationships as the clock ticks down to Spencer’s arrival.
Written by award-winning playwright Katy Warner (2016 Green Room Award Nomination for A Prudent Man), Spencer asks us to consider how much our family defines who we are, and whether we ever really grow up…
