Easter Week 2
As the Spanish Civil War looms, the Andalucian countryside creaks in anticipation. White paint peeling in its exposure to the scorching sun reveals a myriad of fading colours and deep cracks that penetrate into the plaster and, quietly continuing in its midst, a British couple find themselves torn in the approach of the uprising that turns the country and their world on its head. This new play explores the shadows in the still life of sweet oranges on the kitchen table, finding beauty and darkness in the simplicity of the home. As the militant radio chatters away the tea is running out and the milk turning sour. What, then, could be worse than an unexpected visit from a mother-in-law?
