The brilliantly observed, moving and funny play from the writer of the international smash hit One Man, Two Guv'nors.

Another Sunday night shift. The smell of bread baking. The industrial thump, thump, thump of the machines that never stop. The ovens are cranked up to full blast, the factory is humming, and everyone wants to be somewhere else.

But this shift is going to be different. Because when a crisis hits the factory, the men have more to lose than just their wages...   

Richard Bean’s first major play is directed by Eleanor Rhode, whose credits include the multi-award nominated production of Thark at Park Theatre, and the Time Out Critics’ Choice productions of The Drawer Boy and Generous.
