After the death of her sister is left unresolved, Esther is broken and alone. Searching for closure, she is increasingly drawn to the disturbing world of Keith. As their relationship progresses the two spin webs of trickery and deceit – but who is the spider, and who is the fly? Can either of them escape their shared past? And will they emerge unscathed?

Spiderfly is a taut, thrilling debut play. It was long-listed for the Bruntwood Prize and has had the support of Old Vic New Voices. It is directed by Kirsty Patrick Ward (The Sweet Science of Bruising, Groan Ups) and presented by Metal Rabbit Productions (Radiant Vermin, Cargo, We’re Staying RightHere, Lardo).
