A fierce and devastating fable about enforced silence - commissioned and premiered by Paines Plough, one of Britain's leading new-writing companies, to open their This Other England season at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London.
Two houses, each perched on a mountain top, stare at each other across a deep valley. A man and a woman talk about the small things parquet floor zigzagging down corridors, the memory of mother's breasts, brown sauce and soggy chips. But these minutiae disguise a bigger story of brutality and unfaltering loyalty which emerges horrifically through the chit chat.
'Walsh once again proves himself an inspired wordsmith' - Daily Telegraph
'Walsh's beautiful, terrible play... is a small play about the big things and the writing is harrowingly precise and poetic' - Guardian
