David, Kojo and Sharon grew up on a North London estate. Now in their mid 20s, they are eyeing another kind of life. David, an anansi figure just out of prison comes to stay and turmoil results as fortunes rapidly turnaround for the middle-class couple. The play asks whether being out of the system might be just as good as being in it.
