Review Sydney Arts Guide by Mark Piggot at Flicker Fest: 

"Florence Keith-Roach’s A FAMILY AFFAIR is an excellent comedy. Annabelle wakes up in a stranger’s bedroom on her 30th birthday. She thinks her day can’t get any worse but then Bernard walks in. It is cringe worthily awkward and then it gets worse. Florence Keith-Roach story is beautifully outrageous as she takes us down some unexpected rabbit holes."
