You wouldn't go here for service!! Intriguing drama.
30 August 2016 | by (Swansea, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Part of the BBC's thirty minute Theatre series, Under the Age was a rather bold drama for the Seventies.

Two bawdy men enter a pub out of the rain, they find Susie, they encounter the temperamental Susie working. Suzy's more interesting in applying more makeup, Susie's not exactly friendly, and doesn't extend the warmest of welcomes. The men are intrigued by Suzy, who is a transvestite. The atmosphere changes when two young girls enter.

It's a very interesting snippet of Seventies attitudes, times have changed a lot since, it's very watchable, and I can imagine it would have been quite unusual during its original transmission. It's interesting from a Social point of view, loaded with angst and sexual tension. 8/10
