JMK Award-winner Liz Stevenson directs Barbarians by Barrie Keeffe (The Long Good Friday).

Prospects are grim in 1970s Lewisham when three unruly lads leave school, filled with the spirit of rebellion. Petty crime on the familiar streets of South London provides an outlet for their frustrations. But as they search for a way to belong in a society riven with unemployment and rejection, Jan, Paul and Louis' close bond is threatened. Caught between friendship and self-preservation, the energy of youth becomes a menacing force. Liz Stevenson's production draws on the humour, grit and relevance of Keeffe's trilogy: Killing Time, Abide With Me and In the City.

Barbarians is designed by Fly Davis, with light by Matt Leventhall, sound by Peter Rice and movement by Ayse Tashkiran.
