East London. 2023.
Steven has always tried to be a good person. He works hard. He looks after his family. But, suddenly, everyone starts accusing him of things. His wife accuses him of being unfaithful. His mother accuses him of being coercive. And his brother, Barry, accuses him of...what exactly?
Barry won't say. Or can't. Or perhaps...Steven hasn't done anything at all.
Following its critically-acclaimed and hit run at Park Theatre in May, Philip Ridley’s gripping four-hander of memory, manipulation, and power - now regarded as a modern classic - is back by popular demand.
