Chips with Everything
A brilliant critique of the class system, set within an RAF base.
Play of the Month. BBC 1975
Dir Waris Hussein
With Tim Woodward, David Daker, David Troughton, Thorley Walters
Arnold Wesker’s play, which opened at the Royal Court in 1962 and transferred to Broadway in 1963, offers a brilliant critique of the class system as a poison at the heart of British society. The verisimilitude of Hussein’s production creates an intense claustrophobic macho world effectively articulated by a fine cast, making this period piece seem strangely contemporary.
