Presented as part of Dublin Theatre Festival 2015

Attractive young Dubliner, Lydia retreats to a small country village in an attempt to escape from her past and reinvent her future. She moves in next door to Tom and Mary, the typical country neighbours, or are they?

Lydia quickly becomes the object of curiosity not only for Tom and Mary but the community at large. Tension mounts between the two women, setting in motion a gripping and unexpected chain of events that threatens to expose the secrets and lies bubbling beneath the surface in this small, close-knit rural community.
