Hero's Welcome

Seventeen years ago, Murray fled the neighbourhood under somewhat of a cloud and certain local folk have long memories, not least Alice, the mayor, whom he left standing at the altar.  Indeed few of his friends, once the welcome flags have stopped waving, seem particularly happy to see him back. 

Murray’s declared intention of staying put and settling down with his new bride threatens to stir up all sorts of old rivalries and resentments.  Suddenly the couple, in search of peace, find themselves once more in the firing line.


Written & directed by Alan Ayckbourn
