A coastal town, somewhere in Australia. Skeleton population in winter, swollen with the holiday crowd in summer. This particular bunch have been coming to their beach houses for years. They’ve got the money to enjoy themselves, they always have. Why should it be any different this year? Why should it ever change?


I love this play – its games of love and human foibles, its black sense of humour. It has a classic theatrical motor: a group ofpeople who can’t get through a holiday without throwing a punch and smashing the mirror. But it’s also a big-picture play about us, how the hell we’ve ended up where we are… – Eamon Flack, Artistic Director
