The Contractor

One of the great post-war English plays, The Contractor also achieves one of the greatest theatrical coups - the raising, lining and dismantling of a huge marquee live on stage! First performed in 1969 (with a young Martin Shaw in the cast), this highly entertaining modern classic was then a major West End and Broadway hit. The Contractor's daughter is getting married and nothing will ever be quite the same again. Centred on a gang of workmen erecting the tent for the wedding, their joking, banter and camaraderie expose the changes happening in society in the Sixties. Funny and heartwarming, The Contractor is a bittersweet tale of three generations of a family, of work and love, hard graft and skiving.
