Very Hard Times

Photos by Toby Farrow
Publick Transport tackles the thorny issue of economic hardship with the mangled secateurs of melodrama in this dark, brooding meditation on the banking crisis.

In their over-eagerness to be zeitgeisty, a trio of performers present the topical story of an impoverished couple's downfall at the hands of a loan-shark. But with personal differences getting in the way, what was nearly a rip-roaring tale of good versus evil gradually morphs into a study of theatrical incompetence.

Written by Angus Barr, directed by Phil Booth.
