The country is in ruin. Sick of corrupt politicians the population has revolted but it turned to anarchy and now everything is breaking down. Dog is a manipulative dealer with a plan to turns things round but his motives are unclear and he cannot do it without the respectable looking Candidate on his side. Meanwhile Sweet Thing is an awful reminder of what people have become.
David Bowie originally planned an album based around the George Orwell book 1984 but was unable to get permission. The Diamond Dogs LP was his own version of the Orwellian concept. This play is inspired by Bowie's imagery, the songs on the LP and the lyrics to the songs Candidate and Sweet Thing.
