What’s your life worth? In a horribly plausible near future, a government obsessed with capping the spiralling pensions deficit has come up with a price. They’ve even hired one of those arms-length organisations they get to do their dirty work to sell it. In their sights are people like Alan McDonald who have reached their average life expectancy. But Alan is having none of it. Part Swiftian satire, part intimate reflection on what it’s like to grow old, Robert Dawson Scott’s timely new play asks troubling questions about high-pressure sales techniques, self-worth and the dark side of family love.
