Have you ever fancied a go at the wee sh*te who nicked your car, a one-to-one with the pickpocket who pinched your wallet or five minutes in a room with the little b**tard who broke in to steal your new plasma-screen telly?
The Civilisation Game is a comedy-thriller that bites back.
Guy and Roisin are settling down to start a family, right now in fact, on their first night in leafy suburbia when young Robbie from the nearby estate bursts in to shatter the perfect mood, the perfect moment and any chance of them starting the perfect life. They’ve got him cornered and they could call the police but what’s the point if the kid’ll just get a slapped wrist? Especially when new neighbours Peter and Amanda land in on them with much more entertaining ideas of criminal justice. So the burglar’s going nowhere and for one night only they can do what they like with him.
“A wee touch of revenge is good for the soul.”
From the creator of Channel 4’s Teachers, Channel 5’s Minder and the award-winning satirical farces Caught Red Handed and To Be Sure, The Civilisation Game is Tim Loane’s new chaotic comedy that explodes a few suburban myths as enigmatic burglar Robbie unleashes his own private riot on a perfect world in a very tasteful kitchen.
