London's rich past as a melting pot of cultures is one of the themes of Madness's 2009 album - The Liberty of Norton Folgate, which has inspired Mark Davies Markham's play. Gazi and Sitara have been serving full English breakfasts at the Union Café on London's Norton Folgate for thirty years. But now the council have served a demolition order, and it looks as if their son Aki's girlfriend's father, Ralph Burke, is behind the plan to develop the site. No one is going to let the Union go without a fight, and soon Gazi and Sitara find that they have the support of pop royalty in the form of Suggs, Chas Smith and Mike Barson from Madness.

Directed by Jeremy Mortimer
