By 1999 Great Britain is part of a true European Community in the midst of a Euro-war. The play follows the fortunes of a small family unit -Sam, Rachel and Cathy - over a period of 20 years, during which time it considers the political ideals of the youth in the 1990s, and compares them to the same in the 1960s.

Is Coanwood CC really just a cricket club or a private guerrilla army? Is their selection committee meeting being bugged by Blenkinsop CC, or the Forestry Commission? Is Morna Ridley a spy? And most important of all; will Coanwood CC beat Blenkinsop CC next Saturday?

by TOM MCGRATH .
The Nuclear Family consists of Joe
(father), Agnes (mother) and two teenage children, Gary and Ann.
Joe was made redundant in the mid-1980s, like so many other men, and hv 1999 - the year in which the play is set-it is the children who are the breadwinners. Joe decides that the family needs a break, the first since Gary was a baby so makes plans to visit
'Sea Bed 6' to spend two weeks on a working holiday.

by STEPHEN LOWE Time: 1999
Setting: A city tower block converted into a government-run 'Youth Unit'. The youths, at an age when they might be studying, training, working or protesting, have been ' bought off by the government -this being paid for by the ' New Wealth' created by the development of the new microchip technology. The 'shades of the title are dark glasses, the donning of which enables the youths to pursue - each of them - his or her own dream, career or obsession.
