“Clubland” is a comedy about a mother who tries to come between her son and his coming of age. Tim’s mom, Jean, is a bawdy and risqué comedienne still hoping to make it big. His brother Mark helps their mother rehearse for shows. Together, they inhabit a non-traditional household where chaos is the norm, the music is always on, and Jean’s larger-than-life personality takes center stage. When Tim meets and falls for Jill, his home becomes a combat zone as his mother fears this new girl, whose name she refuses to remember, will “break up” the unique family unit she’s tried so hard to keep together. In this hilarious, quirky, and oftentimes touching tale, Tim must learn to manage the emotions of the women of his life without losing himself in the process.
Directed by Cherie Nowlan, “Clubland” is written by Keith Thompson, and stars Brenda Blethyn, Khan Chittenden, Emma Booth, Richard Wilson, Frankie J. Holden, Rebecca Gibney, Philip Quast, Katie Wall, and Russell Dykstra.
