Sign of the Times

by Tim Firth

Director Nick Lane

By day, Frank puts signs on the sides of buildings. By night he is a writer of great, thrilling – though unpublished – spy novels.  When a work experience scheme lands him with unenthused teenager Alan, Frank’s fascinating knowledge seems to fall on deaf ears. In a world where jobs are scarce, dignity is difficult and they’re carting away the vending machines with the Twixes still in them, is that flickering ‘For Sale’ just a sign of the times?
