THE ACHING, SWELLING HUMANITY OF THIS BOOK SWALLOWED ME WHOLE' SABA SAMS London, 2019. It’s the hottest June on record and the weekend is about to begin… Maggie is 30, pregnant and broke. Faced with a future in the home town she once fought to escape, she’s beginning to wonder if having a baby will be last spontaneous act of her life.
Ed, a bike courier, can’t wait to settle down with Maggie. But she doesn’t know that he has a secret history with Maggie’s best friend Phil. Phil hates his office job and is living for the weekend, whilst falling for his housemate, Keith.
But there’s a problem: Keith already has a boyfriend, and they’re about to be evicted from their warehouse commune anyway. Then there’s Rosaleen, Phil’s mother. She’s just been diagnosed with cancer and is travelling to London to tell Phil, if she can ever get hold of him.
As Saturday night approaches, each of their lives look set to change forever. Taking place over two blisteringly hot days in the feverish capital, this is an addictive drama, painfully relatable to anyone living for the evenings and weekends. 'One of the most promising spoken word artists in the country, who avoids misty-eyed accounts of society and instead cuts through with brilliant observational political commentary.' Irish Times
