Mark Ravenhill's bold tragi-comedy

Drugs, sex and microwave meals. Mark is a recovering junkie; Lulu is asked to sell ecstasy after a topless audition; Gary is a rentboy looking for someone to fulfill his violent fantasies; Robbie sets up a phone sex line with Lulu to try and pay the bills.

With black humour and bleak philosophy, the play shows the lives of disconnected youth reduced to transactions by a dysfunctional consumerist society.
