The Weekend


Michael Palin

7th - 14th October 2006

Director: Vi Pope
Assisted by Jan Atkinson

Faced with a weekend containing a family visit including a dog, and a dinner party including a stray chiropodist, Stephen reaches for the whisky and the sarcasm. A look at family values which is not only very funny, but also has its darker side.
