Life as a mother is full of challenges: there’s the house to be paid for, a high-pressure full-time job, and a daughter who has started having nightmares.  So it’s a relief when grandma steps in to help: dealing with the school run, preparing the daughter’s dinner, reading the bedtime story… everything suddenly becomes easier.  But what starts as desperately needed support gradually begins to feel pernicious. Best not to look too closely. Questioning things might lead to the end of this essential arrangement. And then the telephone starts to ring in the middle of the night…

Hannah Khalil’s Hampstead debut is a dark thriller that explores motherhood and the secrets that no mother could ever share with her child. 

Hannah's plays include A Museum in Baghdad (RSC/Kiln); Interference (National Theatre of Scotland); Scenes from 68* Years – (Arcola - James Tait Black Award shortlisted) and The Scar Test (Soho).

Audrey Sheffield makes her Hampstead Theatre directorial debut. Her directing credits include Twenty Twenty (Young Vic), The Effect and Apologia (both English Theatre, Frankfurt); The Dark Room (Theatre503 - Nominated for Best Director Offies 2017) and We Too Are Giants (Kiln).
