After 15 years inside, political activist Nick emerges to find that the old causes of the 80s have become the lost causes of the 90s. As he struggles to get to grips with this new world, he collides with the new generation. Bonded by a love of pills, parties and therapy-speak, Nadia, Tim and Victor take Nick on a search for the happy-ever-after.

Sharp, satirical and pulsating with energy, Some Explicit Polaroids weaves an engaging urban fairytale for today. In an age where political change seems a distant memory, Ravenhill asks "how did we get from there to here?" and "where do we go now?"

REVIEWS

"A powerful and universal, if profoundly sad, cry for love, friendship, companionship and fair play..." - Variety

"A funny, brilliantly subtle treatise on the subject of value and belief at the end of the 20th century." - The Guardian


Some Explicit Polaroids, produced by Out of Joint, was first performed at the Theatre Royal in September of 1999, under the direction of Max Stafford-Clark.
