“You’ve endangered us. You’ve endangered your family.”

During an attack on London, 20 year old Imogen joins a campaign offering refuge to victims. Before her family have even had a chance to have a reasonable discussion, John is at their door.

He is different to them. He isn’t what they expected. And although they’d never admit it to themselves, he isn’t necessarily what they want.

“You will do anything, in the end, to keep the people you love safe.”

Cordelia Lynn received the 2017 Pinter Commission and returns to the Royal Court after making her debut here in 2015 with Lela & Co.

James Macdonald’s previous work for the Royal Court includes The Children (and New York), Escaped Alone (and New York), and The Wolf From The Door.

William Mathieson9th August

A play full of drama right up until the last, where the ending is one of the most disappointing i've witnessed. The acting is very hit and miss, although both parents are excellent.
