All families are strange! The O’Brien siblings haven’t spoken in years. But when big sis, Angie, dies Tony & Bev have to sort through the family stuff. Remembering the 70’s when they were close brings Angie back. With the help of The Bee Gees, Bowie, and Benny Hill, tears turn to laughter… and Pan’s People dancing. Can looking back help us to heal and go forward? Or are we destined to repeat old habits?
Inspired by stories of families within our community ‘Storm In a Teacup’ looks at the petty squabbles that cause major problems in families. Grudges can go on and on. Angie O’Brien never forgave little sister Bev for not admiring her new kitchen in 2013. Bev hasn’t spoken to brother Tony since he got drunk at her daughter’s wedding and Tony has been miffed at the pair of them for as long as he can remember. No-one knows why. What happens if it’s too late to make-up? When Angie dies Tony & Bev have to man up. Neither are prepared.
