Abstract:

"1966. London. Money is there for the making - but the white heat of the technological revolution has not yet reached Chapel and Sons, an ailing family business specialising in billiard tables. In the dilapidated workshop, three generations conspire against each other for control of a firm which might yet be turned into a goldmine." "First staged at the Hampstead Theatre, A Going Concern is at once a detailed naturalistic study, a lament for a passing industrial age and a reenactment of the ancient mythic struggle between fathers and sons. Though lovingly recreating the sixties, the play offers some ironic sidelights on the recessionary nineties."--BOOK JACKET.
