The Union Theatre has David Eldridge’s Market Boy coming soon. “It’s 1988, Boy.  It’s going to be the best year yet.  Everything’s in front of us.  Thank Christ for Maggie!”

There is an art to selling stilettos and you’d better grasp it.  Learn a good wind-up, learn the pull of the cash, learn drugs, learn sex, and run wild with the market monkeys.  Stay sharp in the ruthless world of the Essex traders. Romford Market, 1985.  This boy has everything to learn.

Market Boy premiered at the Royal National Theatre on 27 May 2006.
