Danny's skint, no change there. His girlfriend Amy's left him, the flat's a mess, got nothing to smoke. The only thing different today is that he's going to get his legs broken. Danny owes some bad people money. If he doesn't come up with £800 by tonight a lady called Cathy will be calling with a baseball bat.
He can't beg, can't borrow and isn't much cop at stealing so Danny, Amy and her Dad set off on a quest through Leeds to get him the dosh. From Beeston to Briggate, casino to karaoke, with Cathy and a psycho called Cauldron in pursuit, will Danny get his happy ending or is he just the no-hope Scuffer other people see?
Scuffer opened at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in March 2006. Mark Catley's acclaimed plays Sunbeam Terrace and Crap Dad also premiered at the Playhouse, and are both published by Oberon Books.
