The play that won Clare McIntyre the Evening Standard and Critics Circle awards for Most Promising Playwright.
'an unsentimental but sympathetic portrayal of women trying to make sense of their place in a threatening and intrusive world.' David Edgar, The Guardian
'a fiercely modern parable of modern materialism - set in a grand, empty seaside flat, where two friends are spending the weekend' - Financial Times
'sits firmly in the honourably incensed and censorious tradition of Look Back in Anger. It could prove to be just as significant' - Observer
