Simon is 17 years old and has just been sent to stay with his grandmother in Queensland for a change of scene after his life was turned upside down after developing osteoarthritis, which destroyed his promising running career.
His grandmother is in the midst of writing the family history, which she unsuccessfully encourages him to help with. However, when the ghost of a long-dead relative appears to Simon he starts to work on the family history and unwittingly reignites a feud with some long-estranged relatives.
"This light-hearted tale of skeletons in the family closet, sometimes subtle, often straightforwardly funny, well paced and well articulated, has much to recommend it."
"Hoogendornâ€™s humorous entertainment about hidden secrets, family conflicts, skeletons in cupboards and cans of worms is sure to bring a smile to the face and keep one guessing to the very end, when all will be revealed."
"â€œWARTS and Allâ€ is a well rehearsed and strongly performed new comedy by prolific local playwright, Bruce Hoogendoorn."
"Bruce Hoogendoorn is probably Canberraâ€™s most prolific playwright, having written and produced six of his own plays in as many years. His latest play, Warts & All, which Hoogendoorn directs himself, is his most accomplished and entertaining work to date."
