Synopsis

Six actors punch, kick and wrestle their way through the Wild West of an East London drinking establishment.

The ritual of the Western bar-brawl is relocated in a London working men's club.

The formal approach (to choreography, framing and editing) ensures that the viewer is made aware of the choreographed nature of the violence. This violence appears to have no consequences, the actors' bodies being as rubbery and invulnerable as those in the television Westerns that inspired it.
