Theatre at Riverside Studios – The Political History of Smack and Crack

June 21 - 25

A twisted love story between two life-long addicts

Tracing their own lives from the epicentre of the civil uprisings in 1981 to their present-day survival on the streets, Mandy and Neil chronicle the fallout for communities crushed by the heroin epidemic at the height of Thatcherism.

Inspired by the playwright’s own experience in jail and rehab, The Political History of Smack and Crack is a riotous and tender portrayal of two addicts shot through with home truths about the road to recovery.

“2am 8th July, 1981, all the major cities of England burn.”

The night of the uprisings. That night should change everything.

Exposing how the personal can be fatally political, this powerful production was the winner of Summerhall’s Lustrum Award in 2018 and finalist in Theatre503’s Play Writing Award in 2017.
