Pen-blwydd Poenus Pete

A sparkling and biting comedy with an outrageous look at family life by the acclaimed playwright Gary Owen.

There’s a family - Mum, Dad, two children and Cadi the cat. Dad says he doesn’t want any fuss at all on his birthday. So Mum takes him at his word: she and the kids don’t do ANYTHING for Dad’s birthday.

But, Dad is furious about no one doing anything for his birthday. And when Dad’s frustrations combine with the Cat’s mischievous power, chaos comes to a family gathering.
