On a remote livery yard in rural England, Jim arrives ‘home’ after eight years away, in need of work. It didn’t end so well last time, but he's sure that this time it’ll be different... Sam, as old as the fixtures and fittings themselves, reluctantly agrees - there’s work to be done after all.

As the men attempt to pick up from where they left off, fresh cracks appear beside old wounds. Things have changed. But the world can only be held at bay for so long before the two men will have to answer for their actions.

A terse and delicate dissection of male emotions from a rural perspective: fathers and sons, honour and legacy, molasses and mud.

“There's a gorgeous fondness between the two men... The rhythms of conversation are beautifully drawn... Crellin is superb. ”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“Superbly staged two-hander... A tender portrait of shifting friendship and the changing English countryside. ”

Kate Bassett (The Times)

“Parr is mesmerising as Jim, his cockiness and short fuse concealing a feeling of worthlessness he's unable to articulate. ”

Time Out (Other reviewers)

“The acting is terrific... Moments when the writing has a real power. ”
