A city. Just like this. Right now. A teenage girl boils up in rage in a toilet cubicle. A finance worker preaches doom in a busy train station. An absurd coke-addled celebrity races through town on a mission. A paranoid stoner stares blankly at the endless disasters on the TV news. In just one moment, all their worlds will end.

“Superb storytelling theatre… Hurley’s new show is a quiet hurricane blowing through the city. It is anxious whisper that becomes a shout; a moment of silence that turns into the high-pitched whine of catastrophe.”
★★★★ Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

“Acutely observed yet ferociously powerful storytelling… an absolute highlight of the Edinburgh Fringe.”
★★★★ The Independent

“Urgent, compelling, beautiful writing… confirms Hurley’s status as one of the most powerful writers to emerge in British theatre this decade.”
★★★★ The Scotsman

Directed by Julia Taudevin and Alex Swift. Music by Michael John McCarthy. As part of the Made In Scotland showcase 2016
