Jack McCracken is a man of principle in a corrupt world - but not for long. Moments after taking over his father-in-law's business he's approached by a private detective armed with some compromising information.
Jack's integrity fades away as he discovers that his extended family is made up of thieves and adulterers who are looting the business from their suburban homes. Rampant self-interest takes over and comic hysteria builds to a macabre climax.
Alan Ayckbourn's A Small Family Business, a riotous exposure of entrepreneurial greed, returns to the National where it premiered in 1987. Nigel Lindsay stars as Jack McCracken.
