RUNNING TIME/NOTICES: 60 mins (no interval)

The daughter arrives home. Life has moved on, and why shouldn’t it when she’s only back to flirt with England?
The mother fades into view. She is furious. She chases the bin men down the road with a fistful of the rubbish they have left behind.
There is much unresolved and unspoken between these displaced women,but the daughter has a decision to face and does not want to do so alone.

Packed with humour, this beguiling and tender new play investigates motherhood and the forms it takes in a small exiled family unit.

This is Tassa Deparis and Anna Crace’s ssecond outing together after their theatre adventures in Berlin. This time they come with support from Scene Gym, advocates for new writing, whose aim is to bring actors, directors and writers together to develop and explore exciting new ideas from emerging artists.
