Our second festival of new plays featured a production premiere and four rehearsed readings, all written by ex-prisoners. Accompanying playwriting projects took place at HMP Thameside and YOI Isis.
I ‘old me temper an’ I never ‘ear them voices no more. Get an occasional lousy now an’ again but that’s it.
A darkly comic portrait of dishonorable thieves bound together by addiction.
Tel’s left Bermondsey behind and only robs the occasional drum now. He prefers dealing in moody clobber from Deptford. But he’s got a screw loose and word’s out he’s a soft touch. Thick-Al owes him a monkey and he has to revisit old hunting grounds to collect.
