Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
This slice-of-life musical is set on London's Portobello Road and focuses on life in a ramshackle boardinghouse. Among the argumentative boarders are a Jamaican family trying to make ends meet and a teen couple hiding out from parental disapproval. These characters are complemented by a tipsy Irish bartender, his girlfriend, and hippie-types whose main occupation is smoking weed.
