The Low Road

Royal Court
11 May

A penny-poaching, swaggering,
penny-feather-in-his-hat rapscallion, Jim.
A brothel foundling, raised on whores
and honey, out for a gentleman.

Luckless and naked, scaredy cat he swims
in free trade seas, trading in time and sex,
freedom and finery; for here money’s king
and there’s no place in sanity for charity.

The Low Road ran at the Royal Court until 11 May
