-I want things to get better, not worse. -There's hundreds of thousands worse off than us. Ideals are worthless if you can't pay the bills. Anita and Sam live in East London. Burdened by debt and on the eve of giving birth to their second child, Anita begins to wonder whether it was a good idea for Sam to become a social worker. Can they survive in David Cameron's London on Sam's wage with two children? Anywhere else it would be fine, but where he's needed most, can Sam make ends meet? Will their marriage take the strain as the needs of family are pitted against the greater good? Bitingly funny, challenging, angry and deeply humane, My Girl 2 is Barrie Keeffe's reworking of his iconic 1989 play. This edition published to coincide with the premiere of the updated version at the Old Red Lion Theatre, London, in 2014.
