The author of tonight's play, Troy Kennedy Martin, is one of television's most successful and controversial writers. The creator of Z Cars, he followed up this popular success with Diary of a Young Man which sparked off a lively argument about television drama. He has always been an innovator, and he had always had an uncanny knack of coming up with the right stories and characters at the right time.
In The Man Without Papers, his first single play for television since his prize-winning Interrogator in 1961, he had created another contemporary hero. Roscoe is his name, but who is Roscoe? An American who burnt his passport during the days of McCarthy and had been on the run ever since. But what is Roscoe? Is he an idealist or a fast-talking hustler? Is he a twentieth-century saint or an evil destroyer of those with whom he comes into contact? Men and women react violently to him, they either hate or love. And to be in love with Roscoe is dangerous, as his old friend Castle and his wife Marcella find out.
From the same beat background as Roscoe comes the star of the play, Ben Carruthers. Born into a generation of protest, involved with the New York avant-garde in theatre and art, connected with a hip scene which stretches from San Francisco to Paris, Carruthers epitomises the best in young footloose 1960s artists who care more for life than for money.
This is also the world of the phenomenal Bob Dylan, currently winding up his record-breaking concert tour, who has specially written the songs his old friend Ben Carruthers sings in tonight's production.
