Starring Dawn French, Alison Moyet and June Watson, SMALLER toured for six weeks before an extended run in the West End.

the life and soul of the staff-room, Bernice Clulows selfless devotion to her disabled mother, Maureen, is legend. Yet every evening as she heads home, the smile becomes fixed; Mum will want to talk. She demands despatches from the human race, when Bernice just wants to kick her shoes off. (And her mums head in). Missing out on these precious mother-daughter moments, Cath Clulow wisely flew the nest straight from school. Now belting out karaoke classics to vomiting, rollicking hen parties in Puerto Banus, she wonders how a promising career in musical theatre has gone so horribly off-key. House-bound honour-bound and homeward-bound, the Clulows pick their way through a minefield of guilt, resentment and fear.
