When Audrey and Ronny win the National Lottery their troubles seem to be over. Long outstanding bills can be met, the loan shark paid off, and their cleaning and cowboy-builder jobs gleefully ditched. But for Audrey, matriarch of the Gateshead tower blocks, and Ronny the flamboyant dreamer, the winning ticket brings with it many other unforeseen changes. There are lotteries of a different nature whose prizes, some lesser, some far greater, must be won or heartbreakingly lost. With humour and tenderness, The Lottery measures human endeavour against the vagaries of chance, fate and mortality. Set against a backdrop of poverty and opulence, this is a love story told with all the timeless poignancy and melody of a folk ballad. (2003-06-09)
