Burdened by debt and on the eve of giving birth to their second child, Anita begins to wonder whether it was a good idea for Sam to become a social worker.

My Girl 2 is a fiery two-hander for the new recession, a marriage in meltdown, and a third version of a play that started out at the old Soho Poly in 1975... now surfaces, still angry, tweaked with spiky updates.
