“richly suggestive and beautifully written…Kirkwood is the most rewarding dramatist of her generation.” —THE INDEPENDENT (LONDON)

“tantalizingly hard to define…it is very English, somewhat menacing, and often funny.” —TIME OUT LONDON

The cost of friendship. The price of progress.
Robin and Hazel are two retired nuclear scientists, living in a seaside cottage on the east coast of England. But all is not as it seems. Their electricity is restricted to evenings, and they have a Geiger counter in the kitchen. On a warm summer’s evening, Rose, an old friend and colleague arrives from America with a startling request.

Award-winning playwright Lucy Kirkwood’s brilliant play asks big questions about the responsibility we face to leave a better world for the next generation. How do we reconcile our mistakes with their impact on the future, and who is meant to clean up after us? —MICHAEL SHAMATA
