Freedom finally beckons for Algie Packer, Essex's most notorious gangster. He's done seven years inside and now he's coming home to collect his reward – £3,672,000 in untraceable notes.

But there's something Algie's family have forgotten to mention . . .

The Packers are Essex's lovable, but most dysfunctional family. Witness their desperate attempts to cover their tracks before Algie arrives to collect what is rightfully his.

Barking In Essex is a riotously funny comedy by Clive Exton, published and produced for the first time in 2013.
