I’m walking down the street and there’s a door in the fence open and inside there are three women I’ve seen before.

Three friends meet for a chat in the garden. A neighbour is invited in and as darker secrets emerge, their afternoon is punctured by flashes of catastrophe.

Escaped Alone is part of the Traverse's £1 Ticket Project.
