Whatever a comedy/drama written by Terry Coyle and directed by Cefyn Gauden.

 

Synopsis

Whatever is a comedy/drama about modern relationships.  It looks at the life of Emma and Robert, a soon to be divorced couple.  The actions centre around a Saturday morning and the task of dividing up the contents of the family home.  There to lend a hand are the “mother-in-law from hell”, Meg and her long suffering husband, Bruce.  Between accusations of past indiscretions, we have the arrival of house stylist Claire, who adds to the intrigue of this very personal story.
