The Political History Of Smack And Crack

A twisted love story of two addicts in recovery.

Tracing their lives from the epicentre of the riots in 1981 to the present day, Mandy and Neil chronicle the fallout for communities crushed by the heroin epidemic at the height of Thatcherism.

The Political History Of Smack And Crack is an angry, funny love-song to a lost generation inspired by the playwright’s experience in jail and rehab.
