'Winner of the prestigious Pearson Best Play Award, 2004, from Royal Exchange Writer-in-Residence. When ice-cream man Giuseppe Raffa decides it's finally time to come in from the cold and retire, he sets his two sons in competition with each other. Over the next twelve months - from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the fall of Thatcher - Rocco and Lino will compete to see who can sell the most ice-cream. The winner will gain the family business; the loser will be left with nothing. Supported and obstructed by Rocco's wife Bernie and Lino's girlfriend Lulu, the fight for the hearts and money of the people of Manchester quickly becomes a deadly serious business. And soon everybody's screaming for ice-cream .
