Description: Everybody recognises the Grump, everybody knows a grump. And maybe there's a little grump in every one of us . But when the Grump finds himself in hospital in a semi-conscious state after falling down his basement steps, his life passes before his eyes.
Synopsis: Everybody recognises the Grump, everybody knows a grump. And maybe there's a little grump in every one of us . . .The Grump, at eighty years old, is more focused on death than life; building his own coffin and keen to write his will in ink - who can trust technology, after all? - he knows that everything was much better in the old days. But when the Grump finds himself in hospital in a semi-conscious state after falling down his basement steps, his life passes before his eyes. Thinking of the people closest to him and reflecting on the changes society has brought about, he realises he must come to terms with the cards life has dealt him. With wry humour and sharp observations on family and relationships, The Happy Days of the Grump is a black comedy, sure to bring a smile to the face of even the grumpiest among us.
