A comedy by Tim Firth, author of Calendar Girls & Neville's Island

On-stage at the Duchess Theatre, Chatsworth Centre, West Gate, Long Eaton
Thursday 20th - Saturday 22nd March 2014


Welcome to the "animal shift" at Kale Moor grocery distribution depot. Under the imaginative guidance of Bruce "The Gamesmaster", work here is an endless round of food sports (sprout tag, Smartie-and-flan-base tiddlywinks, frozen fish swordfighting...), sarcasm and juvinile humour, much enjoyed by the all-male night-shift workers. But a major change is due, for their new colleague is not a born games player but is - even worse - a woman, who can see through the childish antics of the men to the insecurities, and weaknesses beneath. At first, relations are reasonably civilized, but the gloves come off when the cerebral challenge of murder-mystery role-playing is presented to the team .... and there are surprises in store for all of them..
