You can choose your friends but you can't choose your mother-in-law. Electra and Adam are living proof that opposites attract. Electra is warm, passionate and creative. She wants to have a baby. Adam is calm, reasonable and very English. He doesn't. Enter the mother-in-law...Cold, critical and snobbish, she disapproves of her son's marriage. And then she moves in with them. Will their relationship survive? This work is a darkly funny, insightful and cautionary tale that will make you question where your loyalties lie.
