FIXED DEAL is a play about drugs - both legal and illegal. It tells the story of those who are seduced by the glamour of drugs and of those who perpetuate the suffering caused by them ... those who become victims and those who grow rich from exploitation.
FIXED DEAL tells the story of four women from different backgrounds and cultures. The one thing they have in common is that they are all, in their various ways affected by drugs. FIXED DEAL looks at the way in which different cultures respond to different kinds of drugs.
