A fast-moving witty play about Essex boys and their hopes, dreams & frustrations …
Smudge, Pugh, Pidge and Dan are four mates in their mid-twenties.
Sitting on a crumbling sea wall in Southend at the arse end of summer with beers in hand, they plan the five-aside for Monday night.
But there's something else the lads really don't want to talk about …
This very funny and very moving play is about secrets and lies - feeling trapped by childhood, making those big choices and perhaps wanting to start again from the very beginning.
Tightly packed with laughs, but underscored by limited horizons and lives lined with loss, this is a Bruntwood prize-winning play from Luke Norris (Royal Court, Paines Plough) - an Essex boy raised in Romford with a real ear for the everyday.
