When Richard and Clare inherit a house, they also inherit a sitting tenant, John Hector, who treats the house as his own and the local town as his own personal fiefdom.

by Nick Warburton

Directed by Sally Avens

Richard and Clare have inherited a house on a clifftop in Breck Howe but the sea is eroding the land.
Their tenant John Hector is intent on stopping them all from being evicted, but when Clare suggest they need a voice on the council the result is anything but the democratic process she imagined. Comedy as North meets South in a definite clash of cultures.
