England, 1987. An unpopular leader is re-elected, the country lives in fear of terrorist attacks and is still reeling from the effects of the recession. But for the inhabitants of a Lancashire street, there’s a party to go to. The vagrant Scullery is your tour guide, introducing you to an array of characters all trying to find some kind of escape from their squalid existence. Jim Cartwright’s text conveys the desperation and abandonment that the North felt, with the jobless population at nearly 12%, levels not seen since the Great Depression. The play is an arresting mix of humor and pathos, transporting the audience with energy, passion, and poetry, leaving you uplifted and reminded of the extraordinary resilience of the human spirit.
