Romford Market, 1985: Mrs Thatcher urges us to embrace the market place, but this boy has everything to learn. Read More >

Market Boy - NT Olivier 06

There’s an art to selling stilettos and you’d better grasp it. Learn a good wind-up, learn the pull of cash, learn drugs, learn sex, and run wild with the market monkeys.

A spectacular, savage, gorgeous yarn which brings a market jungle to the vast Olivier stage; a tale about the time Mrs Thatcher said we should embrace the marketplace; a story about losing your innocence. And your cherry.
