2008 / 2009 ATG "Curtain Call" Awards
It hasn't been Griff's and Ruby's day, really. Griff has discovered - in the most dramatic fashion - that their son Nigel is not only a drag queen but gay; hours later, Nigel is in hospital having been hurt in a car crash in which his lover, Kevin, has incurred much worse injuries.
Robust, sensible Ruby has much to deal with - Nigel's fears, Griff's prejudices, her own confused emotions - and has to use every resource at their disposal to keep the peace, especially as, for the first time, she and Griff are face-to-face with their "in laws", Kevin's parents Rita and Vernon.
Many secrets raise their ugly heads and many harsh words are spoken in between the hilarious one-liners before this sharp yet compassionate comedy reaches its bittersweet conclusion.
