Adam and Jan are alone together for the first time in almost 10 years. Without the buffer of their nine-year-old son (who is away at his first-ever sleepover) Adam’s attempt to seduce his wife before he leaves on business the next day begins a suspenseful nightlong roller-coaster ride of revelation, rancour, passion and humour that explores a modern-day marriage on the verge of either a breakup or deepening love…
This smoothly scripted multi-layered play reveals how closely love and hate can be linked in marriage, with each problem experienced as parents another subsequent layer revealed shows yet another problem in their relationship.
The play is an incisive close-up of the emotional battleground of contemporary relationships and the lengths to which a couple will go to save it.

“The play is a bruising back and forth of power games, recriminations, seemingly innocent putdowns and ugly confessions, but it’s the evidence of inextinguishable love and desire that makes this 21st century George and Martha fascinating.” – David Rooney, Variety
