David Edgar is one of our most celebrated and prolific political dramatists. Preferring to be called 'a writer about public life' his work has told us much about the state of Britain, contemporary Europe, and about humanity's continuing dilemmas. In Wreckers
, first performed by the leading exponent of Political Theatre, The 7:84 Company, David Edgar explores the cataclysmic industrial relations meltdown that was England in the 1970s. Strikes, strife and direct action are poignantly depicted in this hard hitting and infinitely entertaining production - perhaps a vision of things to come?
