Sharp-edged, tough and funny, The Scam is Peter Lloyd’s play about two young Welshmen out to hit the business big time.

Keen to escape their dead-end lives on a housing estate, AI and Oar make do picking apples until a chance meeting with the quick-talking Finn sets a wholesale scheme in motion that could net them all thousands. AI, all optimism, cajoles retailers and troubled grower Nick, while Oar, who remains suspicious, sets about the back-breaking deliveries. Are the lads on the brink of riches or will their plans and dreams unravel?

The Scam is a ruthless expose of the 'feel good factor' that fuelled the boom of the eighties. It reveals the lighter and darker sides of friendship, class, macho attitudes and professional greed.

"A gutsy, vibrant, articulate work which suggests considerable talent"
The Guardian

"A piece as edgy and streetwise as a sock in the mouth"
The Liverpool Daily Post

Peter Lloyd's other plays include The Touch, written for London's Bush Theatre, and I've Been Eddie Mostyn. His work can also be seen on television.
