Kevin is an escaped psychiatric patient.
Millie is a six year old with a mouth like a sandblaster. Granny doesn’t stand a chance!
Escaped psychiatric patient Kevin Haggerty is not pleased about his diagnosis, even less pleased about being on a section of the Mental Health Act, and distinctly upset about being told he is not the reincarnation of the pharaoh Ramses 2nd. On his way to Egypt, via the Tesco Express, he stumbles across the nemesis to all his plans: Millie.
Together they embark on a journey that will change their lives forever.
Thursday 1st November @ 7.30pm
