Ray was stitched up and now he’s out of jail, he’s out to settle the score. Whatever it takes. In this darkly comic story of burglary, double-dealing and brotherly hate, there is no honour among thieves.
Informed by his own experience, Simon Bennett’s play concerns the crisis in the life of a recently released house-breaker. Authentic, vivid and brutally funny, Drummers pushes family loyalty to dangerous limits and makes for compulsive viewing.
