    Genre Festival, Theatre,

Traverse Theatre Company

Part of Made in Scotland Showcase 2014.

Can relationships withstand the brutality of betrayal? Joan and Tom, Tara and Peter; two couples struggling to comprehend their roles as lovers, partners and individuals.

As Tom and Tara face the tedium of daily life, how far will they go to feel their hearts beat again? When their paths cross, the emotional fall-out will be explosive.

From Owen McCafferty, writer of the Fringe First Award-winning Quietly, comes a stark and searing glimpse into the reality of our relationships - the unspoken desires, the piercing regrets, and the postponed conversations that mark us all.
