'In gambling as in life, the bigger the odds the greater the rewards’

It’s 2006, and the local brewery is closing. Will Rose’s betting shop be next? Meet the staff and customers of Grosvenor Racing, an independent bookmakers in a changing Wandsworth town centre.

Tom, the small stakes punter who dreams of turning his hobby into a profession. Kelly, the cashier sick of settling bets and being polite to customers. And Dennis, who once staked everything on a 5/4 shot, but now can’t even risk being honest about his own feelings.

Can they survive the closure of the brewery? The coming recession? The armed robber targeting betting shops in the area? Find out in Justin Hopper's new play, a funny and moving love letter to the high street bookies.
