Tell how it chanced that we sworn mates were once the deadly poison of each other’s eye...

Mike and Les strut through their manor - the Commercial Road - brawling, swearing and living for the moment in all its dubious glory. Their first encounter is a fight over Mike’s girl Sylv yet they become sworn mates, thick as tea leaves. And then we meet the fascist Dad and the faded Mum… and can’t help but hope for more for Mike, Les and Sylv.

A cast of five and a live pianist, twists and turns of foul-mouthed verse and explosions of personality will plunge you into interior worlds you might never want to crawl out of.

“Raw, sleazy, provocative, delicious, and gritty... The cast are all equally glorious... All played out with a fantastic truth.”

Alistair Wilkinson (Broadway World)

“An inventive, invective-filled revival... Still a visceral vision of a festering society... Actually seems remarkably prescient.”

Fergus Morgan (The Stage, What's On Stage)

“Spittle-spattered, testosterone-charged... a filthy mouth... Yet Lazar’s revival is unconvincing... strangely polite.”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)
