A short play by one of the UK's leading dramatists.

Premiered at the Royal Court in October 2012.

'No one could blame me.

I've been hurt.

You're a monster.'

A child is shut in her room, a dog is dead in the road, someone is kissing her brother in law.

A family locked in hatred is sending a son to war.

And meanwhile in another country...

'The best short play since Harold Pinter's <i>Mountain Language</i>' Mark Lawson, <i>Front Row</i>

'As always Churchill seems inventive, coolly socialist, bleak yet dazzling, a bit of a shaman' <i>Evening Standard</i>

'An intriguing work, with an underlying atmosphere of unease and menace reminiscent of Pinter... it nags away in the memory long after you have left the theatre' <i>Telegraph</i>
