Gerald Roth, is a struggling wine merchant. To save his ailing business he’s started selling assets.  

His watch is an antique; maybe it’ll pay for a month’s rent on his shop.  When Gerald learns the watch once belonged to Von Ribbentrop, a leading Nazi, he realises he could put it into auction and solve all his money problems, as long as his family doesn’t find out, because his jealous brother, overbearing mother, and pious wife would never speak to him again.

The problem is that the family has gathered for the annual Passover dinner, and somehow his brother has got his hands on the valuation letter from Sotheby’s.

This is a perfect ‘dilema play’ with some brilliant comedy from two of the UK’s best writers, and it’s based on a true story, the watch really exists.
