An austere landscape creatively painted with poetry that brings "truth to the bone" of living life in inner city Manchester today. It describes how a community still survives now it has become prime land for the universities and developers as the cranes of corporate Manchester loom ever closer. It's a snapshot of a time and place from a resident who is striving to capture Hulme's soul that shaped her life and captured her heart.

Tina Cribbin throws a light on the injustices of the modern welfare system, tackling issues such as loneliness, mental health, poverty, gentrification and the imposition of middle class values on a working class population. The Hulme born and bred playwright turns her hand to poetry with devastating effect.
