Ian Puleston-Davies

Luke (Ian Puleston-Davies) is a writer, works on a TV serial. When he loses his job, he decides to downsize, moving from a trendy part of Manchester to a little house (a bargain!) in Salford. He used to live there in his student days so thinks he can make friends with the neighbours and put up with the litter, graffiti, thieving and such. But it's harder than he thinks, even though he's quite hard. When he gets some foreign tenants, things turn nasty. Ed Jones's play is brilliantly observed, very well acted, quirky, strangely funny and very disturbing.
