On the Road Again (Three Plays)
The striking humour and resilience of his characters, often at odds with social and political trends, beset by unemployment and harsh circumstances, shines through. In ’On The Road Again’ two tramps (one a compulsive cheat, the other a hapless liar) receive a notice to evict them from their derelict caravan home. Redundant miners kidnap the Secretary of State for Wales in ’The Best Years of Our Lives’. ’Cradle to the Grave’ chronicles the comic and painful misadventures of a patient named Nye Bevan, mistakenly transferred from a private to an NHS hospital, which, for all intents and purposes, has been closed.
