The Greeks had a word for it - hilarious
Remember the Pilankos famly from It's All Greek to Me? The dysfunctional Greek-English family living in London in the swinging sixties?

The Old Mill Theatre company are happy to tell you that they're back. Local award-winning playwright Noel O'Neill has created an hilarious sequel to his charming original, with many of the same cast who created the Pilankos' first outing.

O'Neill has put the family in an even more precarious position - Stavros returns to London a sad man. Circe has left him and put a curse on Nicky. With Christmas approaching, little money, a pregnant daughter, a suicidal wife, his slow-witted son wishing to get engaged, a crooked seer as a friend and an eye for the girls in his life Nicky has to find a way to get the curse lifted!'
