From the writer that brought you Man In The Moon, As The Tide Ebbs, an the Holy Holy Bus comes a brilliant and dark new comedy.

Azir, a political refugee, comes here to escape a life of persecution only to find himself right back where he started. He gets taken advantage of by Duff a local drug enforcer and gets dragged into a life of crime from which he tries to escape.

However, Azir is not the only victim of Duff’s sociopathic behaviour as Duff’s impressionable protégées Cricky and Lala are also led down a path of delusional dreams and idealistic dead ends.

You will not want to miss this black comedy about how idealism and the struggle for freedom can lead to many different places, some hopeful but others violent.

Not suitable for audiences under the age of 16.

Music by Michael Mormecha
