About the Book

'We've got nothing to learn from anyone. We are who we are. We do what we do. No-one else can touch us' - except, that is, the horrific past of a city where human fat once ran in the gutters, the city ablaze.

Homesick, but fame-crazed, a group of Liverpudlian lads are about to become part of Hamburg's history forever.

Presence premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in April 2001.
