Morris and Jean never seriously expect to win the National Lottery. When they do - to the tune of two million pounds - they can't believe their luck.
Their lives are irredeemably changed by the windfall - the question is, for better or worse? The cracks in their marriage widen, their past catches up with them and their relatives become increasingly resentful. Jean keeps winning and Morris takes off to Amsterdam with an old flame, but will his prophecy that bad luck always follows good turn out to be true? Can money buy happiness? Is enough ever enough?
John Godber addresses these questions with his customary wit and compassion in this sharply observed and brutally funny play which was presented by the Hull Truck Theatre Company at the Spring street theatre, Hull, then on tour and at the Hampstead Theatre in 1995.
