Special guest at the screening, the producer of The Lump, Tony  Garnett
The play is set in the building industry:  An industry which is getting rougher.  Because over it falls the shadow of 'the Lump', a system of work where men are self-employed and on their own.  Bought and sold like cattle on the hoof, they are often behind with their tax, their cards are unstamped, and an accident at work can lead them to the scrap-heap. Tony Garnett, Radio Times, 1967. 
This event has been organised by the Mary Quaile Club.  More information about the event:
