The Frontline Summary


The Frontline by Che Walker

Saturday night outside the tube: God, strip bars, weed, crack, lost old men, unemployed actors and vegans all collide in a riptide of chaos on the streets of London. There's Beth the reformed Christian and Erkenwald the hot-dog seller, old Ragdale on a quest to find his daughter, actor-playwright and egomaniac Mordechai Thurrock, and Cockburn, Elliot and Clayton the dealers and junkies whose trade both sustains and destroys the lives of those around them. In this vibrant and darkly comic new play, a dozen private stories emerge and their voices give utterance to a storm of subjects and feelings: pop culture and sexual fantasy, the ruins of empire and the delusions of religion, foreign oil and prehistoric London. A panorama of contemporary London encompassing the cruel and the tender, the gutter and the stars. Che Walker's The Frontline premiered at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, London, in July 2008. 'The brusque, bathetic poetry of back-street Camden is Walker's lingua franca. Flesh and blood and honour are his themes' Time Out on Che Walker's Flesh Wound
