Raymond Marks is a normal boy, from a normal family, in a normal northern town. His father left home after falling in love with a five- string banjo; his fun-hating Gran believes she should have married Jean-Paul Sartre : I could never read his books but y'could tell from his picture, there was nothing frivolous about Jean- Paul Sartre . Felonious Uncle Jason and Appalling Aunty Paula are lusting after the satellite dish; frogs are flattened on Failsworth Boulevard; and Sickening Sonia's being sick in the majestic cathedral of words.
Raymond Marks is a normal boy. Until, on the banks of the Rochdale Canal, the fly-trapping craze begins and, for Raymond and his Mam, nothing is ever quite so normal again.
In Raymond, prize-winning and internationally acclaimed playwright Willy Russell has created a character to rival his Shirley Valentine and Educating Rita.
