Five years after her death, Gerry and Roger’s mum, Martha, has gone missing. Well, most of her has…

The unwitting victims of animal rights activists campaigning for the freedom of the family frog farm’s slimy inhabitants, the brothers bring in the hapless Inspector Clout to establish the whereabouts of their long dead mother. An absurdly funny comedy, Raising Martha tackles terrorism, animal rights and six-foot frogs!

"The spirit of Joe Orton is alive and well in David Spicer's jet black farce...  it often reaches that blissful plateau where it is literally impossible to stop laughing"
★★★★ WHATSONSTAGE 

"... so many memorable lines and ridiculous scenarios that it proves to be a thrilling addition to the modern farce canon"
★★★★ REVIEWSHUB

"Very much enjoyed  @RaisingMartha Bizarre & funny with great perfs. Bonus for Doctor Who fans: Davros vs Plantagenet!"
