Loosely inspired by the 1960s film 'Guess Who's Coming to Dinner', this play takes a light-hearted look at the different reactions within one Irish family to the arrival for dinner of Ben, a Nigerian asylum seeker. In particular the play focuses on Larry Linnane, a man who loves his wife and family and football and dinners swimming in "gravy you could dye your hair with". He considers himself a liberal until his eldest daughter brings home "the black fella".
Cast doubling is possible. See original production for details.
