Mackenzie Crook and Amanda Root star in this magical play which was co-written by comedy writer-performer Amelia Bullmore and playwright Duncan Macmillan.

Nancy knows her teenage son doesn't like washing, but she has no idea of the strange and bewildering consequences that this lack of soap and scrubbing will lead to - and nor does Dan. As his body adjusts to a more "natural" state, Nancy and Dan's delicate status quo is disrupted and life-changing decisions have to be made.

Family Tree is a fairytale about mums and their sons and allowing children to grow and blossom into the people they want to be.
