Billy Fisher has trouble with the truth. Life is just so much more exciting in his dreams than in the small northern town where he works as an undertaker's assistant. But his fantasies and vivid imagination frustrate both his family, his friend, his boss and his two fiancees.

As his grip on realtity gets weaker, Billy's determination to flee his family and responsibilities grows apace and events take a darkly comic turn when he plans to escape to London - with yet another girl!

The first opportunity in many years to see this major play of the Fifties.
