Still as startlingly original as it was then, EAST is assaultive, riotously funny, and entirely unapologetic. Mike and Les strut through their manor - the Commercial Road - brawling, swearing and living for the moment in all its dubious glory. Their first encounter is a fight over Mike’s girl Sylv yet they become sworn mates, thick as tea leaves. And then we meet the fascist Dad and the faded Mum… and can’t help but hope for more for Mike, Les and Sylv.

A cast of five and a live pianist, twists and turns of foul-mouthed verse and explosions of personality will plunge you into interior worlds you might never want to crawl out of.
