production information

In a housing crisis, a young couple are offered a home of their own. But at what price?

The world premiere of this provocative new play by Mike Bartlett invites us to spy on a family as they embark upon a dangerous new way to live.

Game audiences will see the Almeida auditorium radically transformed in a production that offers an unnervingly intimate viewing experience.

This production reunites writer Mike Bartlett (Earthquakes in London, Cock, King Charles III) with acclaimed director-designer duo Sacha Wares and Miriam Buether (Wild Swans, Sucker Punch, My Child, generations).
