'WHY OTHER PEOPLE P!SS YOU OFF'

BY LINSAY OLIVER

Darkly comic play centred around a group of strangers hoping to #avoidthepoints by attending a Speed Awareness Course. With sermons from The Church of Right of Way (HIGHWAY-LUJAH!) and true life accounts, the Hammers guarantee (ish) that in the course of 1 hour, you'll laugh, cry and learn some of the Highway Code (you thought you knew already).
