Stockport, 1988. It's midnight. Rachel, eleven, and Billy, six, wait in the car in agitated excitement. Their mother is at her wits' end with all their chatter and fighting and dreams of Disneyland. She is about to leave them for good. Their father, drunk in the flat above, has locked the door. It's a pivotal moment, the beginning of a thirteen-year odyssey for two kids, largely abandoned and growing up in the deprived suburban shadows of Manchester, a city that felt itself to be the most exciting in the world.Performers William Ash, Nicholas Sidi, Siobhan Finneran, Emma Lowndes, Andrew Sheridan, Fred Ridgeway, Colin Parry, Rachel Brogan.
