“When you’ve got no nation, no government, no place in the world, what have you got? Family. You can’t depend on anything else.”

East London, 1968. Yetta Solomon is the quintessential refugee who survived the un-survivable, then toiled in sweatshops to make her way in the world. Having built a mini-empire out of nothing, she takes no prisoners and suffers no fools.

Now the formidable matriarch faces her toughest battle yet, as she presides over warring sons and a younger generation who can’t wait to move on. Determined to protect the legacy of her shop, how far will she go to keep the business in the family and the family in the business?

Ryan Craig grew up in the fourth generation of rubber retailers. Rather than run from his past, he chose to re-imagine it from within. The result is a fiery new family comedy that has won rave reviews and secured his place as one of Britain’s major new playwrights.

Hysterically funny and historically fascinating, Filthy Business is a towering tribute to the entrepreneurial outsiders who have become the beating heart of every modern society.

Encounter contemporary theatre’s new Mother Courage in this epic and indomitable smash hit comedy.

Starring Jennifer Ludlam, Jodie Dorday, Andrew Grainger. Directed by Colin McColl.
