It seems that Mary and Adam Connor have the perfect life together; great jobs, a new flat and a beautiful baby girl. But as the hidden cracks begin to show a devastating hole opens up in their picture-perfect world and tests their relationship to the very limit. Is their marriage really for better or worse or are some things truly unforgivable?

Sam Hoare’s debut play interrogates society’s willingness to overlook unsettling truths and asks how far we will go to assuage our guilt. His award-winning feature film Having You released in 2013 starred Anna Friel and Romola Garai.

Tom Attenborough returns to direct following sell out hits Experience earlier this year and The Wasp which opened in the West End last year. His other credits include Speech and Debate (West End), Private Lives (ATG UK Tour) and Dinner with Friends (Park Theatre).
