The Story 
“Riff-Raff” is a rock musical which speaks to the young people of today about problems which face them.
No facile answers are offered and no easy way out is shown.  The view, presented throughout the script, is the right of young people to challenge the world around them, to question the direction in which they are moving and to demand explanations from the figures of authority and influences in their lives.  Razie, shy and lacking in confidence, feels the restrictions of her migrant background when she wants to be part of the gang.  Her friend Julie, brash, street-wise and angry, is suspicious and critical of her situation, her peers and the world in which she finds herself. Mick, bright, breezy, a likeable Mr Nice Guy, still finds himself in difficulties when his deep ambition to succeed is thwarted while his school friend Doogs, tough and aggressive, is openly hostile to the world but underneath is a vulnerable innocent.  These four school friends find escape, excitement and danger in the glitzy world of Spinner, a smooth treacherous D.J.
