Synopsis


“There's a devil inside you egging you on to put a stop to his happiness - and that's why you'd want me to come away with you, isn't it?”


The London premiere of Philip King's 1970 play Go Bang Your Tambourine.


Young David Armstrong misses his mother.


Following her death, he now lives alone in their North Country house, a devoted member of the Salvation Army.


But tongues start to wag when David advertises for a lodger, and good-hearted, attractive Bess, a local barmaid, moves in.


But when David's estranged Casanova of a father decides to move back in, uninvited and unwanted, the impossible situation quickly comes to a head …


Seen in London for the first time, Philip King's touching domestic family drama is a new insight into the work of a classic British playwright.
