It's 1977. Youth unemployment is at an all-time high and the pound is at an all-time low. Paul, Jan and Louis are bored, broke and demoralized by the hand that they've been dealt. How will these young lads fair with the odds stacked against them? How will they cope?

Cut off from society with no-where to turban, the play resonates with a modern audience who will no doubt recognize the disaffected youth of 1970s Britain. Barrie Keeffe's tragically dark play crackles with tension throughout, building to a twisted and dramatic end.

This programme text edition was published to coincide with the revival of the play by Tooting Arts Club on 3rd October 2015, staged at the former Central St Martins School of Art on the Charing Cross Road, London.
