A Mad World, My Masters
For the dodgy residents of a run-down housing estate on the edge of Hackney Marsh, the Golden Jubilee celebrations provide the perfect cover for a priceless con. But when a quack doctor, a randy grandmother, a sleazy city gent, a schizophrenic spin doctor and a goody two-shoes all get involved, their best laid plans dissolve into riotous, hilarious farce. It's fast, curious and full of fun.
