Life is sweet for the Sellars. John is a self-made man - a hard-talking, hard-living, solo father on the fast track construction cash cow. His son, 15 year old Nathan, has everything - freedom, money, plus attitude and an ego to match. But enter Robert Holton, the Datsun driving, lefty liberal saving the world and Nathan's NCEA grades and it's an equation for chaos. As exam time looms, political correctness and right-wing consumerism go head-to-head. Three men on the collision course of life where the bonds of mateship develop in the most unlikely of places.

From the writer who brought you the stand out hits Niu Sila and Seven Periods with Mr Gormsby, comes this comedy of (bad) manners about parenthood in the fast lane.

"Elliott is particularly impressive, with superb comic timing."
The New Zealand Herald

"An agonisingly funny comedy of insight…the surprise ending deftly reveals the play's true heart."
National Business Review

"It's a fast paced, perfectly cast romp that presents us with food for thought amidst a smorgasbord of laughs."
