April married David John in prison where he was serving 15 life sentences for a string of grizzly murders. Now he’s been released on a technicality and he’s coming to live with her as man and wife. Her sister May isn’t pleased – she has to sleep in the next room! DC Jacksons first new play in 8 years is a schlocky romp where John Waters meets Forbes Mason, with gags and gore galore.
