a darkly comic play about the struggle for intimacy by writer and performer Emma Hemingford.
When Mark reacts unexpectedly in the face of a violent mugging, his girlfriend Jess is left with questions. Does she have the right to feel betrayed by Mark’s failure to defend her – even when the incident turns out to have been a harmless prank? As the young couple attempt to repair their differences, rom-com sparring exposes something more sinister: a thorny and unsettling discussion of gender politics that refuses to take sides.
