After years in prison and subsequent hardships, Ray, fifty-six, has a new identity and has made a new life for himself, thinking that he cannot be found. Una, twenty-seven, has thought of nothing else; upon seeing a photo of Ray in a magazine, she has arrived unannounced at his office. Guilt, rage, and raw emotions run high as they recollect the passionate relationship they had fifteen years ago, when she was twelve and he was forty. Without any moral judgments, the play never shies away from the brutal truth of this abandoned and unconventional love. Una is looking for answers, not vengeance. Nevertheless, the consequences are shattering.

About the play:

This intense work was commissioned by the Edinburgh International Festival, where it received its world premiere.

Guilt, rage, and raw emotions run high as they recollect the passionate relationship they had fifteen years ago, when she was twelve and he was forty.

Nevertheless, the consequences are shattering.

Reviews of the play:

"It's a wonderfully engaging intellectual conflagration with a very slow burn…a dark and beguiling play which stays with you…a remarkable play." —CurtainUp.com

“This is an extraordinary, no-holds-barred drama that both chills and thrills…raw, wounded intensity. Magnificently tense and atmospheric.” —Telegraph (London)
