Up In Arms presents
31 January – 25 February 2012
'This is my life. I want to do more with it than flip burgers.'
Thatcher's England, and Luke and Andy are facing the end of their childhoods. Luke is the first in the family to go to university; but as Andy looks for a way of escaping the life he was born into, he can't stop thinking about his father.
Surrounded by mixtapes, guitars and ambitions, the two brothers discover how easy it is to get lost in a country that doesn't look after its own.
Directed by Alice Hamilton.
"See this memorable, touching, unsettling, occasionally funny, and thought-provoking play now and you might be one of those smug types who can claim down the line that you saw two fine young actors in a tiny venue before they made it big... Quality productions at Tristan Bates continue..." The British Theatre Guide
"...realistic and sharply considered...It's smart work from director Alice Hamilton." Telegraph
