Product Description

Review

The tension, the emotions and the sense of absurdity and fear are brilliantly handled... A terrifying tour de force. --Sunday Times

[a] powerful new play... The clash between the tone of sadness and the tricksiness of the play's structure gives the evening its undeniable edge. --The Stage

Not a bad play. Didnt really go into too much depth about the characters and felt like it could have explained a bit more. Quite funny though.

Fantastic play that draws you into it's bizzsre world so much so you easily believe it could happen where you live.

Wonderfully interesting characters.

Great to act as the behaviour oozes through the words, twisting and turning revealing people going through the motion of life, but not really living, therefore, breathing corpses.
