1970 No internet, computers or mobile phones. ‘Groovin With Mr Bloe’ tops the charts. Accommodation focuses sharply on both the random nature of death and the comic shift of power and opportunity it brings to the inhabitants of a shabby London rooming house. Triggered partly by the author’s own experience when first living in London, this early play demonstrates his already highly developed ability to use silence and rhythmic language to very considerable dramatic effect. A vivid, quirky, darkly funny play.
