A play about the things we don’t want to see or say.
Sarah has news, but her partner, George, is too busy to listen. They’ve just bought their first home, but Sarah’s commute is now so long that she may as well turn around and head straight back to work. Worst of all, the local shop doesn’t even stock decent wine, let alone wine that’s been in the fridge. It’s a full-blown booze crisis.
But George has a surprise…. He’s invited Laura and Tom around for dinner. Sarah hasn’t seen Laura since behaving disgracefully at Laura’s daughter’s second birthday party and, as the wine flows, their civilised dinner party descends into drunken truths. Finally, the chaos of the world can’t be kept outside any longer.
Sarah has a big decision to make. Friendships come into question and their lives may be irreparably changed. Can they continue? Or is this the end?
