Description

Working-class means many things now. Everyone knows the stereotypes, but it's time to hear their voices. A father putting his hopes on his daughter's future. A couple of dealers attempting to flee the country. A tutor manipulating his way to normality. A florist always running from brutality. Another young boy, stabbed too close to home. This is a story about people trapped in the cycle of deprivation. Based on real stories and real lives, Block'd Off is a hard-hitting one-woman play exposing what it's like to be working-class in London today. Supported by the Pleasance's Generate Fund.
