A hot summer, Rosia Bay, Gibraltar, 1982. Three British teenagers compete with the local 'spics' to hunt the fleet of octopus that have recently hit the Rock. With Doink s new spear-gun and a regime to suit any aspiring young Marine, their dominance of the Bay seems assured. But for the sons and daughters of the British Forces another, more deadly, conflict in the South Atlantic brings starkly home the human cost of empire. Following the smash hit of his first play Gagarin Way, Gregory Burke draws on his own experiences growing up as part of a family stationed in Gibraltar during the Falklands War. The play contains strong language.
