'I'm going to prison for parking tickets!' Ever stuck a brown envelope under the couch, unopened? Libby McArthur (River City, The Steamie) shows us what happened to a woman who did just that. Set in a Scottish court and its holding cells, Libby populates the stage with shoplifters, working girls, lawyers, social workers and parking attendants. A darkly funny tale about how easy it is to freefall out of our cosy existences and into our worst nightmares. Written and directed by Scottish BAFTA winner, David Cosgrove.
