Green Fingers

Front Cover
Bloomsbury USA, Apr 8, 1991 - Drama - 96 pages
"An off-beat and often funny account of the gay underworld in Newcastle…Wilcox's dialogue has a sharp, streetwise wit." (Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph)

"In Green Fingers the protagonist is a young corporation gardener accused of joining his lover, a professional burglar in looting the house of one of Newcastle's sugar daddies…Wilcox is more interested in exposing prejudice and exploitation than in the guilt or innocence of any defendant but…manages to conceal any didactic or propagandist aim with consistent skill…"(Benedict Nightingale)

Green Fingers was premiered by the Northern Stage Company with Live Theatre Newcastle-upon-Tyne in February 1990 and was subsequently revived at the King's Head theatre in Islington.
