An original comedy written and performed by real life brother and sister. Horrids is the shop of dreams until two useless berks begin to work there. Olivia Nixon is a comedy actress known for her work with BBC Radio 4, and Luke Nixon (despite being the younger sibling) has already picked up a four-star review from his first play at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe. Olivia thought it wise to use him - to control order they have drafted in their director and part-time father, Alan Nixon (known for some ancient TV comedy).

Full press release

Real-life brother and sister act - Olivia and Luke Nixon play feuding siblings in a 'play' allegedly written by Luke that takes the lid off working in the retail trade at little known fictional department store, Horrids.

The undercurrent squabbling of the siblings is what drives the arguments forward as the Director and part-time real father Alan Nixon tries to keep things in control.

Also threatening an appearance by phone are the vocal talents of their mother - Felicity Montagu.

Cast

Olivia Nixon is lined up for appearances on two brand new Radio 4 comedies - Reluctant Persuaders and Guilt Trip, co-written with Katherine Jakeways and Felicity Montagu.

Luke Nixon, the younger of the two, is already a Fringe veteran having debuted his first penned play, Faith, at the 2014 fringe. He is currently studying Theatre and Drama at the University of South Wales.

Alan Nixon is a veteran of the Fringe having performed, produced and directed over too many years to remember. He was nominated for a Perrier award over a century ago with The John Sparkes Show. His many credits include a lot of radio and television comedies including Absolutely.

Felicity Montagu is best known as Lynn in I'm Alan Partridge as well many other television appearances such as Doc Martin, Mapp & Lucia, and is soon to be seen as Mrs Mainwaring in the new Dad's Army film.
