(Michael Billington’s article appeared in the Guardian, 10/27.)

Ena Lamont Stewart's remarkable play was a big hit at Glasgow Unity in 1947, famously revived on the Edinburgh fringe in 1982, and now it gets an equally loving revival by Josie Rourke at the National. Rightly so: this play, set in a Glasgow tenement in the 1930s, reminds us what economic hardship really means, and yet has an ebullience that suggests a Scottish O'Casey.
