Wiping My Mother's ***E by Iain Heggie
Book DescriptionA caustic new comedy by one of Scotland's most important contemporary playwrights When Derek's girlfriend Kath decides to move in with him she follows the advice of her favourite chat-show host and asks to meet his family. Derek's mother is in a nursing home, resentful of June, the patient with no arms and legs, who gets all the attention. The only saving grace is her care assistant Larry - a camp, ageing clubber. However, what Derek and Kath don't know is that Larry holds the key to a few secrets that are perhaps best left in the closet...Published to coincide with its premiere in July 2001 at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh "Cut-cross dialogue crackles with life; fast, funny foulmouthed" (TES) "The dialogue cuts into paradox, swagger and self defence as keenly as a surgeon's knife" (Observer)
