Description

In a brightly lit cottage on a dark, dreary night, a desperate architect and a gormless schoolteacher make panicked last-minute touches to their home while they wait for a long-anticipated stranger to call… From the moment she crosses their threshold, the delicate battle begins to convince her to do the unthinkable. Questions of morality arise as the plot twists and turns. Fast-paced contemporary tragicomedy from Tiger’s Eye. ‘Lively, innovative’ **** (Scotsman). ‘A surprising edge to its satire’ **** (FringeGuru.com).

Very well performed, you cannot take the eyes out of them wanting to know what's hidden in their words and behavior. It is a very interesting one. Great job!!!

Very interesting play, held my attention with it's twists and turns and kept you guessing. Good acting and direction. I found the ending a bit ambiguous though. Well worth a look.

Not expected, but really enjoyed the humour and the acting of this short play, excellent a must see.

Edinburgh Guide (4/5 stars) 6 days ago

The conversations twist and turn from comic to disquieting, from jokes to judgements... It’s an unusual concept and, while a little slim even for its modest 45 mins, it’s entertaining and neatly performed.
