About Daphne, Tommy, The Colonel and Phil

Imagine your wife turned out not to be quite the woman you thought...

This brilliantly fresh, hilariously surreal new comedy is a madcap domestic farce about an aged couple who discover that their seemingly perfect marriage is not all it appears to be. As a turbulent past crashes in on them, long-buried secrets turn into imminent danger. But can love conquer all?

In a peaceful rural backwater, the irrepressible Daphne and decorated military man Tommy have been blissfully married for sixty-six idyllic years.

But recently something’s been troubling Tommy: a terrible secret.

For decades he’s been haunted by the memories of a black ops mission gone-wrong during the Korean War, and the fallout from one fatal night is finally catching up with him.

With marital bliss on a collision course with the fast-approaching shadows of the past—and with decades of untruths unravelling—perils loom and chaos reigns.

Meanwhile, Daphne’s got a secret of her own. Quite a big one…

Starring David Henry (The Madness of George III dir. Nick Hytner, Mary Poppins dir. Richard Eyre) and Clifford Hume (Misalliance dir. Nick Reed, Aladdin dir. David Kemp).
