A play about a washed-up family business, from the author of The Libertine.

1966. The technological revolution has not yet reached Chapel & Sons, an ailing family business making billiard tables. In the dilapidated workshop, three generations conspire against each other for control of the firm.

Stephen Jeffreys' play A Going Concern is at once a lament for the passing of an industrial age, a retelling of the classic mythical struggle between fathers and sons and a thoroughly entertaining story.

It was first performed at Hampstead Theatre, London, in 1993.

A Going Concern is also available in the collection Stephen Jeffreys: Plays.
