About this show

American Trade is a funny, outspoken play about survival,and a celebration of 21st century London in all its extravagant, confusing and dynamic diversity. When things start to get a little too hot for him in New York, good-looking, charismatic hustler Pharus escapes the clutches of rap star Jules and moves to London, where he starts up an escort business under the guise of a model agency. American Trade demonstrates the pressures and absurdities - for locals and immigrants alike - of making it in the big city. It also throws a wry light on society's obsessions, from desire and control to deception and image.
