SUMMARY

Alice Naylor is having the family round. Son Henry’s got a new car with a football sticker on the back, Other Son Gavin’s brought Thornton’s Continentals, and Husband Roger has taken to painting everything. Not even a nice colour. Lilac. That's a shit colour. Normally, Alice would take this all in her stride, but the thing is, she’s gone and got herself in a coma.

From writer Pete Skidmore (“destined for great things”, Sally Harrison, Woolyback Productions; Smashed Shakespeare: Hammered Hamlet; Footlights smokers; CowsDrinkMilk), and the team behind “When the Rain Stops Falling” and “The Music Box” comes a relentlessly inventive pitch black comedy based on everyone’s true story. “An Earlier Heaven” illuminates the universal cracks in family life, and gives an uncompromising voice to the secret loves and hates everyone harbours.
