When Dave moved south to London he left behind his family, wife Joanne and mounting financial woes in favour of a playground of riches, sex and shopping. Ten years on and Joanne wants payback with interest.
Faces in the Crowd is a darkly comic play that offers a unique insight into twenty-first century London and the debts we accrue in the wake of seeking out our ambitions. It is published as a programme text to accompany the world premiere at the Royal Court Theatre, running from October to November 2008.
