Protection

By Fin Kennedy

Paperback £9.99£7.99

A tough but vulnerable play about our crumbling social fabric - and the people who have to pick up the pieces.

Protection is a behind-the-scenes look at a team of social workers and their 'clients' in Britain's most misunderstood public service. Angela breaks the rules to get things done - her way. Shirley misses the old days, when protection came without a price. Their manager, Gordon, is screwing Angela whilst busy claiming on expenses. And for newcomer Grace, it's a struggle simply not to piss anyone off.

Press Quotes

'Real excitement lies in discovering a young writer who is more concerned with major political issues than minor domestic upsets'

Guardian

'Taut, attention-grabbing new drama... At a point when it seems easier for headlines to demonise the young and disaffected rather than focus on the cycles of abuse and betrayal that create them, Protection races the audience through a sparky evocation of individuals tackling some of the greatest problems facing Tony Blair's Britain'
