Another Sunday night shift. The smell of bread baking. The industrial thump, thump, thump of the machines that never stop. The ovens are cranked up to full blast, the factory is humming, and everyone wants to be somewhere else. But this shift is going to be different, because when a crisis hits the factory, the men have more to lose than just their wages.

Don't see it if you can't tolerate sluggish plays. Also, if you want to see an earlier work by an acclaimed playwright. He has written better plays.
See it if you would enjoy hanging out in a bakery break room for two hours while nothing happens and you miss lines said in a northern English accent

See it if -you can understand heavy lower British dialogue. -are not bored by lack of sets or costumes -aren't bothered by men grabbing crotches
Don't see it if You are easily bored by straight drama, unintelligible British dialogue, lack of sets and costumes. very difficult to understand and follow
