Gordon has worked hard to get where he is. He’s on the verge of a massive promotion at one of the ‘Big Six’ energy companies. His wife Serena has worked hard too, and now dreams of a bigger house, a slimmer body, a happier life. The family appear to be cooking on gas.
But behind their perfect front door, light bulbs are blowing, the drains keep blocking, and a phone inexplicably refuses to charge. Not to mention that daughter Rachel’s adored toy polar bear is nowhere to be found.
As Gordon chases the spectres behind these mysterious events, he spirals out of control and the family are forced to ask whether the life they desire is worth its cost.
Tanya Ronder was commissioned by the Bush Theatre to write this funny and surreal new family drama about the power of the individual in a world obscured by politics.

“Ronder's astringent, surreal new comedy... crackles along... Never quite penetrates the theatrical ozone layer. ”
