A Family Business
Showing by Chris Thorpe, presented during Spotlights on British Theatre

We don’t really talk about nuclear weapons much. Even though they accompany us everywhere. Invisible guests in cafés, on the shelves of supermarkets, in line at the cash machine. Guests that could destroy all of that and more in a second.

‚A Family Business‘ explores this hidden threat and looks at the people who do talk about them. How do ordinary people communicate about extraordinarily  important issues? And what if those ordinary people were us?
