By Jim Cartwright
Directed by Mina Anwar

Jim Cartwright's angry yet funny play takes a penetrating look at Thatcher's Britain in the mid 1980s. Populated by a colourful cast of characters ranging from the very young to the elderly, the setting takes us to a world of social injustice, dysfunctional families, unemployment and lost hope. The interwoven stories and network of troubled relationships prove shocking, poignant, amusing and thought provoking.
