For those of you who don't know, such as myself, the phrase "you'll have had your hole", translates to getting some action. Which is exactly what this screenplay is all about. I enjoyed it very much. It is a quick read. Yet, somehow disturbing to the mind for a very long time. Once again, Irvine Welsh, has giving us charaters we can relate to. Though we may not all want to cop up to it. I have always found welsh's dialogs between charaters the strongest part of his work. This play is a great example of this.
It takes you though a few days in the life of three main charaters. The reader is becomes a part of a kidnapping, a seduction, a love story, violence, a rape, and into the head of a very twisted HIV infected, brutal outcast. I must confess, the end of this play really messed with my head. I wasn't sure I liked it. Until it dawned on me, how much of an impact it had on me. Any serious Welsh fan will love this play! Anyone who is sick of the same old recyceled fiction should love love it too. I've said it before, Welsh is not for the light hearted and easily distrubed people. That would be why this play was pulled off the stage in the U.K. Most people just aren't ready for this kind of writing. Which is why I think Welsh has such a big following among my generation. We all have a rebel in us wanting to get out. We all have twisted thoughts we never admit to. Welsh has no problem putting these thoughts into words. I'd hope that you fellow Welsh fans get ahold of this play. It will definatly shock even the most unshockable!
