Scarlett has escaped. She is starting afresh in the idyllic Welsh countryside; far away from the city, far away from her job and far away from her overbearing family. She is searching for something new, something different. But what is it that she is looking for? And does it even exist?

Colette Kane’s arresting new play asks if family ties can ever truly be cut and whether the grass is really greener on the other side. Colette returns to Hampstead Downstairs following I Know How I Feel About Eve in 2013. Her other theatre credits include Belong (Arcola), Ways to Look at Fish (Theatre503) and Hatch (24:7 Theatre Festival, Manchester/Bolton Octagon).

Mel Hillyard makes her Hampstead directorial debut. Her previous theatre credits include The Brink (Orange Tree Theatre) and The Late Henry Moss (Southwark Playhouse). 

A co-production with Hampstead Downstairs and Theatr Clwyd
