Press Clippings

Stephen Russell's comedy-drama is based on the novel and play by Sue Townsend, and stars David Walliams as a newly elected People's Republican party PM, whose first move is to oust the royals. The clan have to adapt to life in northern cul-de-sac "Hell Close". Funny and provocative, just as Townsend intended.
