Performed by BA (Hons) Acting Collaborative and Devised Theatre studentsOn a sweltering summer’s evening Helge, the owner of a chain of restaurants, is celebrating his birthday. His daughter Linda has recently committed suicide and this tragedy is already overshadowing this event. Her surviving twin brother Christian has chosen this evening to deliver a ‘truth’ speech which makes a startling accusation. This claustrophobic, tragedy unlocks the truth of past events and is in turns funny, powerful and desperately human.
