Romance, rage, revenge and rare groove...Ché Walker and Arthur Darvill's neon-soaked musical comedy arrives to rock summer 09
Yvonne and Simone are cruising for action. Raymond stole Gil’s girl and now Gil wants to slice him up. Barney is just after a quiet life. When all five collide in a seedy London bar, their desires ignite in a guttural blast of cusses, laughs and unexpected romance. Love looks set to finally conquer the two people who swore they could live without it. But how will they know it’s for real?
Pick yourself up, brush yourself down and experience the soul/funk powerhouse of Been So Long.
An English Touring Theatre and Young Vic co-production.
