Beautifully written, it’s a play that looks at big issues, in a small setting, with crackling dialogue and plenty of humour. A play about social responsibility and how the people of the future will respond to our past and present actions.

Lucy Kirkwood has built a reputation as one of the leading playwrights of her generation with such varied work as Chimerica and Mosquitoes and The Welkin which was a success at the Cotswold Playhouse last year.

Tickets £13 available from www.cotswoldplayhouse.co.uk
