Unhappy Birthday


A drama that deals with the themes of what is life all about? Family, marriage, alcoholism, raising children and hopelessness.

This drama is set in a front room. We see Karen sat at a table. Colin, her husband, enters. We find out that it is the afternoon and he has only just got out of bed. He asks if the post has arrived and Karen tells him that it has and they’ve received lots of personalised letters from the gas people, the electric people, the water people and, the council tax people, all demanding money that they haven’t got!

Colin seems to have spent more time filling out competition entries than job applications. He also drinks too much. Simon, there son then enters, he’s not feeling well and not happy that his Mum now has to go out to work, and they can’t afford to buy him any new trainers. It also appears that he is being bullied. Simon storms off.

Karen then takes out a birthday cake, as it is her birthday. She wishes herself, “Happy Birthday” and realises that nobody else has remembered. She assesses her life, and is greatly disappointed, mountains of bills, a drunk husband, a son who seems to hate her, being cut off by the phone company and having to work as a cleaner. Is this all she has to look forward to? More of this? Is this what life’s all about?
