The Arches, Glasgow 21st – 25th October 2008

In a time when women are scarce, and basic provisions are lacking – two men fight for survival; clinging to affection, structure and redemption from a forgotten world. Hurled between two generations, their story is base – reduced to primitive functions:

Younger is attractive, and adequate, as long as he’s sexually active… Revolution is at hand, and now’s the time to act. Older would rather obey the rules. Younger has much less tact. Can you sacrifice self for the state? Isn’t it easier when self, is someone weaker?
