Background


Written by Romford playwright David Eldridge (Market Boy, National Theatre; Beginning, West End), this explosively knotty drama is being brought back to its roots after a 2012 premiere at the Royal Court Theatre.

Synopsis


Len is a die-hard West Ham supporter who proudly made a career at Ford Dagenham.


Now he's on his deathbed with the nearest and dearest gathered to say goodbye.


His sisters, slogging away on the checkouts at Asda Romford and Tesco Basildon, haven't spoken in 20 years.


Over a ham sandwich spread, the banter soon flows and old animosities emerge as it's time to read the will …


A sharply funny play, charting an East End family's history from the homelands of Hackney, via Romford, to Basildon and beyond.
