I dreamt about this last night. I dreamt that I was packing boxes in boxes in boxes.

Tamsin packs boxes in a warehouse, on the clock, with a zero-hour contract. Her brother Dean is housebound. Working to obsessive-compulsive rituals of his own.

When Dean is declared fit for work and his benefits are cut, Tamsin must fight to get the support she and her brother so desperately need.

Royal Court [Off West End]

“A truly beautiful central character... As performed by phenomonal newcomer Doherty, Tamsin is shy, shattered, bright and witty.”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“On-the-money... Grimly fascinating... Sharply directed... Immediate and concerning... Doherty’s intense, and intensely watchable”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Beautifully compassionate... Doherty is tremendously moving... A completely convincing sense of sibling intimacy... Clear-eyed.”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Rigorously eschews rhetoric, melodrama or explicit agitprop... Jabares-Pita’s set design makes its own points.”

Ian Shuttleworth (Financial Times)

“A quietly sympathetic vision of a difficult brother-sister relationship, it’s also a politically charged piece.”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Soper’s debut heralds an impressive talent... A heartfelt portrait of two young people trapped... Doherty: excellent.”

Michael Arditti (Express)

“A flabby, if sporadically charming, 100-minute story that is neither convincing as propaganda, nor entertaining as theatre.”

Aleks Sierz (Arts Desk, The Stage)

“Though the dialogue, in particular, is very well done, it does suffer from issue-itis... Pretty relentless... Drear incarnate.”

Ann Treneman (Times)
