what's the story

Mother’s Milk is a powerful, moving and often funny drama, based on the award-winning novel by Edward St. Aubyn about an English family forced to come to terms with the imminent loss of their beloved holiday house in Provence.

Told through the eyes of an intelligent young boy, Robert (Thomas Underhill); then his troubled father Patrick (Jack Davenport) and finally his long-suffering mother Mary (Annabel Mullion), it depicts their growing sense of betrayal and family breakdown after Eleanor (Margaret Tyzack), the ailing grandmother, decides to leave her house to Seamus (Adrian Dunbar) an Irish conman intent on setting up a New Age Foundation instead of her own family.

Unable to get through to his stroke-ridden mother, Patrick descends into drunkenness and despair, embarking on a short adulterous affair as he struggles to contain his anger and frustration towards the charlatan who has deceived his mother and threatened the family inheritance.
