“Retired people are like nuclear power stations. They like to live by the sea.”

★ ★ ★ ★  "A richly suggestive and beautifully written piece of work.... Kirkwood is the most rewarding dramatist of her generation." Paul Taylor, The Independent

Two ageing scientists in an isolated cottage on the coast, as the world around them crumbles. Then an old friend arrives with a frightening request.

The regional premiere of a compelling and entertaining drama about ageing and responsibility.
