Land beneath our feet. Got all our blood inside it hasn’t it? All that time. Belongs to us.

On a farm in the middle of nowhere, sisters Becky and Anna try to hold their family together after the death of their mother.

Time is always moving somewhere – but here it’s very quiet.

When they discover a stranger wandering  aimlessly across the land, the three establish an unlikely partnership in their determination to survive.

Debut play.

“Distinctive debut... The stage tingles with loneliness in Featherstone’s bleakly beautiful, delicately acted production, ”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Featherstone's production is a sensory overload that works incredibly well... Beautiful in composition and epic in execution.”

Alistair Wilkinson (Broadway World)

“Engrossing... Longman deftly works poetry into the drudgery... The cast are excellent... Beautiful and truthful.”

Daisy Bowie-Sell (What's On Stage, Time Out, Telegraph)

“Shot through with the sense of a way of life in decline... Raw, bleak, humane, if baggy play.”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Life in the countryside at its most lonely, merciless and impoverished... An earthy immediacy and prickly dialogue.”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Flinty humour... Zmitrowicz: excellent... Featherstone's production is finely acted and beautifully paced... Distinct promise.”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Not in any sense an uplifting work... Bleak, dispiriting. ”

Ian Shuttleworth (Financial Times)

“Glimmers of promise... Rubs our noses in agrarian bleakness to the point of gagging tedium.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Tedious and inconsequential.”

Aleks Sierz (Arts Desk, The Stage)

“Plays with time, hurtling between years at click of a finger, but the characters don’t seem to change at all... Pretty tedious.”

Will Longman (London Theatre)

“May just be the most miserable play I have seen... so gloomy that it makes Long Day’s Journey Into Night look like Airplane! ”

Dominic Maxwell (The Times)
