Tony is an oddball loner with a bad haircut, worse hygiene and an unhealthy appetite for straight to video action films who spends his days looking for company with anyone, anywhere. Neighbours, TV license inspectors, gay cruisers, and the local junkies are all welcome chez Tony. Only, if his guests misbehave or try and leave his grimy, skanky flat in a hurry there’s going to be trouble.
Things take a turn for the worse for Tony when the local hard man’s son goes missing (being the only weirdo on the estate does have its drawbacks.) On top of that the Job Centre are on to him about actually working for a living, the mystery smell at home is starting to get unbearable and, despite his best efforts, no one wants to hear what he’s got to say – if only they make the effort, Tony’s shocking and dangerous little secret is waiting to be told…
A powerfully acted and darkly comic portrait of a character you’ve definitely never met before, Tony’s random adventures around the real and unreal London is one to watch out for.
