With a smash-hit, Fringe First Award-winning run at Edinburgh 2015 under its belt, acclaimed playwright Jim Cartwright’s heart-warming but cutting one-man drama RAZ arrives for a limited run at Trafalgar Studios.
Penned by Olivier Award-winner Cartwright, and starring his son, The Archers’ James Cartwright, as Shane, this timely monologue reflects on a lost generation of adults living with their parents, told through the lens of a Friday night out in modern booze-fuelled Britain.
A poignant commentary on an age of booze, drugs, and meaningless relationships, and in a time of rife austerity, manipulative zero-hours contracts and ubiquitous dreams of living for the weekend, Raz explores the implications of a generation without aspiration.
Told through the eyes of Shane, a young factory worker attempting to identify his place in today’s Britain, this is a production featuring exceptional charm, biting wit, and an ultimately humorous and heart-warming account.
