Heather and Carla haven’t seen each other since school. Their lives have taken very different paths – Carla lives a hand to mouth existence while Heather has a high-flying career, husband and a beautiful home. And yet, here they are in a café having tea and making awkward conversation. That is until Heather presents Carla with a bag containing a significant amount of cash and an unexpected proposition…

Morgan Lloyd Malcolm’s electric new thriller asks how far beyond the playground we carry our childhood experiences and to what lengths some people are willing to go to in order to come to terms with them.

Morgan returns to Hampstead following the critically acclaimed Belongings which transferred from Downstairs to the West End in 2011. Other recent credits include You Once Said Yes (Edinburgh/The Roundhouse), Epidemic and Platform (both Old Vic).

Tom Attenborough returns to Hampstead following his role as Associate Director to Edward Hall on the award-winning Wonderland earlier this year. His previous directing credits include Richard III (East 15), The 24 Hour Plays (Old Vic) and Abigail’s Party(Theatre Royal Bath/UK Tour).

Early development of script supported by Bristol Old Vic Ferment
