An Bittersweet Comedy
The piece deals with a Brixton-based building; a funeral parlour, a pub, an urban-zen enoteca, and a conscious eatery. It depicts the story of the city’s changing communities over three generations. George, a fifth-generation pub owner, and Clarence, Trinidadian funeral director, are struggling to accept the tides of developments. They must adapt to survive or risk their families’ business and traditions by staying true to their roots. What do they do? What happens eventually?
