Word on the Street

Word on the Street

Author(s): Romy Wood

Location(s): Cardiff

Genre(s): Fantasy, Fiction

From http://wots1.eventbrite.co.uk:
The homeless are dying: a pestilence is sweeping them off the streets, while the authorities herd the not-yet-dead into sinister ‘clinics’ in derelict industrial wastelands… until suddenly The Public is no longer immune.

Word on the Street is about love and squalor, tenderness and disease, dead dogs and midnight burials, boils and pus and body hair. And politics, of course. It’s about what separates people, and what joins them: courage, resistance, self-sacrifice, humour and friendship. It’s a gruesome black farce: absurd, profoundly moving, and very, very, funny.
