David Leland’s disturbing play about unemployment and racism. The central character, Trevor, is a teenage skinhead, who is determined to reject other people before they reject him. The play traces his increasing confrontation with the authorities through racist attacks, glue sniffing, and stealing. He eventually presents himself to his exasperated social worker after an orgy of violence and vandalism and inevitably ends up in a police cell. Convincingly acted by Tim Roth.
Made in 1982 this film reflects the cultural attitudes and language of the time it was made. The issues raised are timeless.
