An epic fable of post-war Britain, told with lurid and exhilarating energy.

After the war, concentration camp survivor Peter Singer makes for London, where he sets himself up as a purveyor of prostitutes to the upper classes - and the inventor of slum landlordism.

Loosely based on the real life of exploitative landlord Peter Rachman, Peter Flannery's play Singer was premiered by the Royal Shakespeare Company at the Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, in 1989.

Singer was revived in this new version at the Tricycle Theatre, London, in 2004.

Press Quotes

'A big, gaudy, complex play, partly an impressionistic portrait of post-war Britain, partly a meditation on the aftermath of the Holocaust'
