| Great great play would love to see it again
i remember this play vividly and have been searching for it to no avail until this week when i found it through Richard Hawleys link. I remember recording it back in 1994 and watching it a few times, it really stuck in my head especially with the Pogues singing in it. I wish it was shown again or we could get a copy of it - heres hoping!!

I remember the bit where Richard Hawley is walking along the side of a river with the Pogues playing a song, but i am not sure which one now. Also the content of the film was good with the twist at the end it was good to see Peter Davidson in it and who was his wife who had the affair with Richard Hawley?
