Sex is nothing. It’s relationships that’s a poison. It’s love what does the damage.

Great Yarmouth, Norfolk. 59-year-old Ginnie attempts to seduce her unrequited love, the nymphomaniac Brenda. Attila is from Hungary but has ended up scraping an existence in Yarmouth – and pursues Melody who is obsessed with her cold and distant evening-class tutor, Tony. Power-plays and relationships clash until a seduction too far leads to mass murder.

Set in a marginalised Brexit town, an exploration of obsession, sex addiction, and the devastating effect of imbalanced relationships, not least between immigrants and locals, London and the regions.

“Neatly structured, if schematic... Expertly patterned... Serious subjects... are raised but not investigated in depth.”

Heather Neill (The Stage, Arts Desk)

“Noisily ebullient play... ends up shamelessly manipulating the characters to suit the demands of the plot... Lively.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Feels dated... In this long, ambitious, complicated sprawl of a play we never get to know anyone long enough to really care.”

Ann Treneman (Times)
