Caryl Churchill's engaging play is a powerful look at human interaction and relationships. The cast is Lindsey Coulson, Ian Hart, Hattie Morahan and Paul Ready; Gareth Machin directs, with design by Naomi Dawson, lighting by Laurie Clayton and sound by Mike Winship.
One double bed. Two couples. Three short acts of love-tangled conversation that expertly twist and turn, from existential angst to sci-fi films; from explosive arguments to long silences.
Caryl Churchill's plays include Cloud Nine, Top Girls, Serious Money, Light Shining in Buckinghamshire (seen at the National in 1997) and A Number.
