From award-winning playwright Nicky Allt comes this provocative fictional account of life in the city dubbed European Capital of Culture for 2008. The Culture of Capital tells the story of Michael Mac and puts forward the need, skill, and entitlement of native Liverpool people in the basic running and future building of their city. With his marriage in serious trouble and monumental change taking place all around him, Michael Mac feels his whole existence is being ignored to the point where eventual extinction seems unavoidable. The story of contemporary Liverpool becomes entwined with Mac's own personal confrontation with a local drug dealer who, along with Michael's wife, view him as a fool of his own making. With the face of the city changing as dramatically as it ever has in his lifetime Michael sees no way forward, and worse, no way out.
