Michaelmas Week 6
‘This has everything to do with sex. This is about men and women. It’s because he’s a man and you’re a woman.’
It’s Bella’s twenty-ninth birthday. A group of her friends gather to celebrate, but tension quickly rises as the group discusses work, relationships, and sex. Overshadowing the occasion is the fact that Bella’s father is in hospital, about to die, something she has yet to tell her friends. The action is set over the course of a single evening, with Bella’s father present in the form of flashbacks and memories.
Nina Raine’s debut play is a hilarious and explosive examination of what it is to be young, free, and scared to death.
