A tender and funny play about growing up in Romford in the shadow of Canary Wharf.
1995. Big buildings are rising in London’s Docklands. But marooned miles to the east, half-in and half-out of the city, Romford has not been invited to the party. Confused about its identity, the inhabitants of the ‘only town in London with its own ring road’ are trying to cope. The relationships they forge have painful implications, in this poetic and passionate play that explores growing up, identity and loss.
‘an exceptional play… original, sophisticated, intelligent… and highly entertaining’ – Brenda Blethyn, Bruntwood Playwriting Competition panel of judges
