THE OTHER ONE
The Other One is a comedy about what happens when you discover your dead Dad has a secret family and you now have a brand new sister.
Cathy’s dad just died. Colin was the most caring, generous and funny man you’d ever meet. He was a brilliant husband and father, and now he’s bloody died. Kicking the bucket was the most selfish thing he ever did.
But Colin had a massive secret. He had a mistress; which is weird because people with a subscription to ‘Which?’ magazine aren’t usually risk-takers. And not only that, Colin had another daughter with this woman – born exactly a week after Cathy. To cover his tracks Colin decided to call both daughters Catherine, so as to reduce confusion and getting caught. His other ‘family’ – Marilyn and Cat – live 13 miles away in a neighbouring town, and knew him as an unreliable but sporadically wonder sh*t.
Neither Cathy nor Cat were aware the other existed until Colin’s funeral. And this is where everything kicks off – the Cat is well and truly out of the bag.
