“Jeda de Bri and Finbarr Doyle have written a truly terrific representation of an aspect of contemporary life, with sure-fire dialogue and wonderfully layered levels of rage, fear and disintegrating trust. It’s a complex, unresolved treatment of a very modern insoluble problem; a serious, extraordinarily well-made play that is as thought-provoking as it is gripping…….splendidly directed by de Bri.”
