Reading & debate of Norma Cohen's play 'No Reasonable Offer Refused'

Postwar Liverpool is the site of an intergenerational family struggle between Jack, Label’s one-track politico son; Jack's disenchanted wife Nella caught between the worlds of tradition, party politics and her own needs; and their 12-year-old daughter Rosa, whose sharp eye and ear strains towards the heady new beat of rock 'n' roll.
