Beckford, East London, November 1977. Queen Elizabeth's Silver Jubilee tour is a fast-fading memory. ‘Docklands' and ‘Thatcher's Britain' are just over the horizon, but for ageing, balding Teddy Boy Edward Caldecott, other storm clouds are gathering. Ted & Pterry is a modern urban fable set against a backdrop of racism, warring gangs, fabulous fashion and furious music. It is a world in which ‘dinosaurs' (both human and real) are endangered by the threatened destruction of their natural habitat at the hands of greedy developers and corrupt politicians. But two of Beckford's most prehistoric inhabitants are not going to take extinction lying down. Rebellion is brewing and they use their unexpected worldwide fame to throw light on their plight - with spectacular consequences.
