“Some people represent authority without ever possessing any of their own”
The future. Patrick Dugan, or Scruggs to his friends, returns to his home city. He is here to have a proper adult conversation with his father, but finds himself in a world he no longer recognises. Things have changed: the neighbourhood, the people, even Porters Bar. The rich are taking over, the locals retreating into the shadows. But worst of all, Scrugg’s dad has gone missing and shacked up in the notorious ghetto Platinum Point. As tensions rise in the city and the wheels of underground revolution begin to turn, Scruggs begins a dark, comical, musical adventure to reconcile himself with his father.
Subway is a journey through a landscape a few years from now, a show about small acts of rebellion and where they lead.
