Set in Kilburn bed-sit land in 1979, this painfully sad but often funny and exhilarating play revolves around three days in Jean's life, as she battles to find meaning and happiness within her lonely existence. Following an explosive confrontation with her boyfriend Roy and his violent wife Val, Jean goes out for a night on the town with her friend Dawn, returning with Dawn's husband Mick, old mate Len and a very large carry-out from the off licence, for an evening filled with drunken hilarity, raucous banter and surprising tenderness.Performers Sinead Matthews, Sian Brooke, Daniel Coonan, Claire-Louise Cordwell, Allen Leech, Craig Parkinson.
