"In a backstreet garage in Sheffield the tensions are mounting. One minute Pete and his co-workers, Mick and Hud, are having a laugh fleecing Mondeo drivers, the next they’re engaged in an unspoken war. It’s got less to do with camshafts and more to do with Carol. Poor, desperate, manipulative Carol. Carol needs saving – mainly from herself – and money is needed for that. Pete hasn’t got any but Mick and Hud are planning a job, something big, something involving shooters and Pete can be in on it, if he’s got the nerve."
David Bown has been an actor, writer and director in theatre and television both in the UK and in America. He is currently Chief Executive of Harrogate Theatre. His plays include; Ballads, Stand, Loaded, Send Me and The Wedding.
