Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0571195911, Paperback)

Marie and Boo are both teenage tough girls -- yard gals, in the slang of the Hackney ghetto they come from -- but that only makes their dreams that much harder for them to envision, much less attain. In this two-woman play, which is by turns scalding and hilarious, deeply moving and brutally angry, they talk about their love of music and drugs and the men who bring them as well as about the exhilaration -- and terror -- of fighting rival gangs. But as the play progresses, Marie and Boo find that the scheming, thieving, and raving that once bound them together now threaten to break them apart, as adulthood becomes just one more element to complicate their lives and force them to face all on their own a world that doesn't really want either of them.

Yard Gal will have its U.S. premiere with the original British cast at MCC Theater -- the original New York producer of Margaret Edson's Wit -- in New York City on April 26, 2000. Its first production was at the Royal Court Theatre in London in May 1998.
