As Alice and Ben settle into their beautiful new flat they realise that the family across the hall hope to be more than just good neighbours. 

Soon, Juliette, Giles, and their son Francis are wearing out the welcome mat; suggesting drinks, hors d’oeuvres and dancing. Things begin to heat up as innocent invitations lead to passionate encounters and unsettling revelations.

A play by award-winning Quebecois playwright Catherine-Anne Toupin in a translation by Chris Campbell, comes to London after premiering at Theatre Royal Bath

(Some reviews are from Bath).

“Pure, weird beauty... Stunning production... Writing and cast are so good that the play’s many layers never feel like too much. ”

Time Out (Other reviewers)

“Raw, often unsettling, depiction of bereavement and breakdown set against a background of domestic perfection. ”

The Stage (Other reviewers)

“Oddly compelling... Beattie on outrageous comic form... Keeps us guessing with a thriller-like glee... The acting is a joy. ”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Savage, slippery, elegant... as precise as a surgical incision yet as raw as an open wound... Directed with unnerving intensity.”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)

“The head spins, pleasantly, and the heart stirs with unexpected shafts of proper pain... Creepy, rather brilliant. ”

Libby Purves (TheatreCat, Times)

“Continually and intriguingly destabilising... Tautly directed... Right now, this is one of the classiest fringe offerings going.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Darkly funny dialogue... delivered with excellent timing in particular by the deep-voiced Beattie... Campbell is also superb. ”

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