A new play by Jim Cartwright premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in March 2000

From the author of Road and The Rise and Fall of Little Voice comes a new play about life in the North. Sump and Choke are the Little and Large of the local pub. They are friends who have bonded together though a shared passion for the martial arts. What happens to them during their bonding exercises surprises them both. Jim Cartwright's comic drama looks at two northern hard men and explores the idea of masculinity in an age when every certainty is in doubt.He's large as life at the star and garter Saturday afternoons. He bit a pool ball in half last week. He might be a hundred years old but he's the same as ever. A rough tuff puff.
