Nominated for Manchester Theatre's Best Fringe Production, Award Winning Manchester writer, Cathy Crabb's, critically acclaimed new play has sold out Manchester pub venues.
The story is of embittered Cash Generator boss Peter, and his opinionated battle of wills with easy-going everyman bartender, Paul, fought out over the morals and motives of absent regular, Tony Rabonni - a kind and creative soul who, much to Peter's disgust, appears to be an all-round great guy.
Based on Satan's fall from grace in Paradise Lost, the play began life as part of Scroats From The Underground; a response to the vitriol aimed at young working-class men during the summer riots of 2011. When art is seen as frivolous and greed is encouraged, it is a world where happiness and unhappiness collide, and the bar-staff bear the brunt.
With an eye wateringly powerful performance, that will leave you catching your breath, Neil Bell gives us the 'perfect depiction of a right-wing-tabloid reading, acrimonious pub bore', an ‘absolutely watchable monster of a man'.
