This play by the popular Scottish author (whose previous work includes My Romantic History) takes place somewhere in the Scottish Highlands where a couple of hapless hoods are awaiting the arrival of their boss. They spoil everything that can be spoiled. Or not? A brilliant black comedy in the style of Martin McDonagh´s plays or Guy Ritchie´s movies and at the same time inspired by the best of old gangster movie traditions.

Kindly note that smoking, explosive effects nad vulgar language are used during the show.
