As the outside world begins to press in, the three will do anything to keep their secret safe from the adults who come to call.?'A play that is as humane as it is savage... as funny as it is alarming. It is written with as much warmth as it is with truth. It's funny and theatrical and alert and alive. It's terrific.' ?Simon Stephens, playwright and Chair of the Judges for the 2011 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting

Editorial Reviews

"Deals in harsh realism but hovers, brilliantly suspended, between dark comedy, thriller and an expressive human sympathy worthy of Tennessee Williams."-- The Times
