This bakehouse is my church.
Premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in 1999, the play tells the story of seven men who work in a bread factory. One Sunday night, so worn down from a lifetime making dough, Nellie loses his vest in the mix. A detailed analysis of the mysteries of bread making, unearthing the undisclosed hierarchies, the latent power struggles, the petty and not so petty jealousies and rivalries. An investigation into the collective psychology of male night-workers brilliant, touching, funny.
