Garbage is a grungy two-hander set just before dawn on the back of a council waste disposal truck.
Two anonymous garbos trade stereotypically empty assertions of chauvinist masculinity and racist nationalism. Their casually constructed identities are overturned however, when they discover the body of a young girl, overdosed and crumpled up in one of the garbage bins, and their true natures come out.
Short, hard and fast, Garbage would suit independent, student or community theatre production.
