We have to make sure we make the right choices. If we do, we're ok and you'll have a career, be someone who is employable and commissionable. Get it wrong and it's like all over.

Poet Bev Hemmings is in the eye of a storm after she publishes a poem that the world seems to believe is anti-Semitic. She’s convinced she’s innocent, but everyone else – including her PA, Tamsin – wants her to apologise. A press interview is planned to begin her public rehabilitation, but Bev’s dying father, erratic behaviour and tendency to drink make her public contrition a complex process. 

New play which examines the point where pro-Palestinian criticism of the government of Israel and anti-Semitism blur.

“Flawed but thoughtful... Somerville brings out all of Bev’s complexities... fragile and febrile, arrogant and self-destructive.”
