The Addams Family – click, click!


Once upon a time there lived an ordinary family in the suburbs…wait…let’s start that again.

Once upon a time there lived an extra-ordinary family in the…well…it’s sort of a mansion that looks like a museum and it’s a tad unusual looking from the kerbside angle.

 

So this family appear well off (they have a butler) and appear kind (their Grandma lives with them) and have the standard pigeon pair of kids. You know, a son and a daughter. 

 

The story centres around this young lady as she falls in love with a good, normal, healthy, young man…OH NO! Did someone say ‘normal’? This simply does not ‘fit the bill’ for this extra-ordinary family.

 

WHAT TO DO? WHAT TO DO?
