The Real Estate

By Freddie Machin

Ebook £7.99£6.39

A sharply observed, epic play combining elements of social realism and satire, which asks: who do our homes really belong to, and who gets to tell our stories?

A tower block in central London is bought by private developers. Their plan is to raise rents, forcing the current tenants out.

But the residents won't give up their homes that easily. Recruiting the help of a film crew already shooting on the estate, they take on big business – and come face to face with their history in the process.

Freddie Machin's play The Real Estate was first performed and produced by the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts.
