Ché Walker's new play about a saturday night outside Camden tube station. Read More >

On a Saturday night outside Camden tube we meet Beth the reformed Christian, Erkenwald the hot-dog seller, old Ragdale on a quest to find his daughter, Mordechai Thurrock the actor-playwright and egomaniac, and Cockburn, Elliot and Clayton the dealers and junkies, whose trade both sustains and destroys the lives of those around them.

In this blackly comic new play, a dozen private stories emerge, and their voices give utterance to a storm of subjects and feelings: pop culture and sexual fantasy, the ruins of empire and the delusions of religion, foreign oil and prehistoric London.

Contains strong lanuage.
