The Nuffield Theatre Company presents this new play set after this year’s rubbish collection strike in Southampton.
Brian and his family are struggling to come to terms with redundancy as their workplace—the recycling plant—is relocated.
Nevill’s play draws comparisons between the recessions of the 1980s and today.
It explores the real issues facing people thrown out of work, and the myths conjured up by the elite about the easy life the unemployed have.
