This play contains scenes of a violent and sexual nature and has strong language throughout
This darkly comic piece finds humour on the streets where it might be least expected, but ..... As the City of Liverpool celebrates its 800th birthday with a civic bash and looks forward to its year as European Capital of Culture, Danny and Frazer, two strays of middle age, hold their own celebration in a neglected park. Their presence is to be augmented by Marie; seasoned purveyor of sexual services, addicted to heroin and, less understandably, friend of the two men.
As their evening develops the companions indulge in an acerbic and tragically comic verbal assault on many aspects of the life and society that surrounds them, saving their most savage attacks for each other. In the course of their alcohol and pharmaceutical fuelled discourses they reveal something of the past that may have pointed their lives in the direction they have taken.
Most people adapt to modern living, accepting and moulding themselves to the life of an ordered society.
Some people don't. Some people can't.
This play is about them.
