    Mark Wheeller's part fact/part fiction play Legal Weapon tells the story of a sixth-from couple, Andy and Jazz, whose romance is punctuated by a holiday at Butlins, exams, brushes with the law and the death of his grandad. Andy spends the inheritance from his grandad on a power car and flunks his exams, whilst Jazz goes to University and forms a relationship with footballer Matt Irvine. Andy’s life is turned upside down when he kills a moped-rider in a high-speed crash and is imprisoned for the crime.
