False bankruptcy, spoilt rich kids, matchmakers on the take and lawyers on the bottle. Welcome to the world of Moscow's merchant class, the nouveau riche of 19th century Russia. Written in 1849 then promptly banned, Alexander Ostrovsky's debut comedy is a scathing satire of a vulgar and deluded society, where blackmail and hypocrisy abound, the rouble rules, and everyone can be bought, sold or borrowed.
William Thomas (Twin Town, Gavin and Stacey, Belonging) is aging merchant Bolshov, who dreams of a daughter-free retirement whilst clinging to his wealth in this new adaptation by Simon Crowther (Sherman Cymru's The Get Together, ITV's Coronation Street).
Lee Mengo (Stella, Skins, Gwaith Cartref) is Bolshov's hapless clerk Lazar, in love with the boss's daughter but embroiled in his scheme...
Siân Reeves (Cutting It and Mount Pleasant) brings her trademark comedy to the outlandish, lavish Ustinya, matchmaker extraordinaire and all round wheeler dealer who gets tripped up by her love of sable coats... live ones, of course.
The question is, who has an eye for the big chance?
They are joined by familiar faces Guy Lewis, Valmai Jones, Ri Richards and introducing Rachel Redford and Gareth Tempest.
Join us for a hilarious night of scheming, plotting and laughter.
It’s a Family Affair… (We’ll Settle it Ourselves) is a Sherman Cymru production directed by our Associate Director, Roisin McBrinn.
