The Gatekeeper

By Chloe Moss


This is a darkly comic play presenting a hilariously funny slice of life.

Successful Management Consultant Mike, his wife Julia and their adult children Stacey and Rob, are meeting up all together for the first time in a couple of years, at a holiday cottage in the Lake District to celebrate Stacey’s birthday.

Stacey is an independent businesswoman and their son Rob has been away travelling and shows up with his new girlfriend, Angela.

As the evening progresses, the facade of everyone’s perfect lives and long held secrets begin to unravel.


‘Chloe Moss’s script is written with genuine heart, and her truthful dialogue creates an authentic snapshot of a family who try to keep up appearances but simply can’t ignore their differences.’ –


Show runs 26 – 30 October, 7.45pm each evening. Ticket prices: £12 (standard) £9 (OAPs and students) and £6 members of BLTC (booking fees apply). Available via Bournemouth Little Theatre’s website:
