Kelly and Darren are citizens.

Julian and Tara are non-citizens.

Therefore, Julian and Tara must be disposed of.

The two couples exist in a world obsessed with aesthetics, policed by the community. One pair must learn what it is to survive, while the other must interrogate who they truly are and what it is they serve.

Premiered at the Traverse Theatre and winner of the George Devine Award 2002, Gary Owen’s devastating play explores how far humans will go to save themselves and what we are capable of when faced with the most brutal of dystopias.

In this online production recorded from their homes, four Guildhall actors present a rare chance to experience this vicious tale of love, revolt and beauty, directed remotely by John Haidar.

“A blast of brilliant theatrical writing straight from the heart” – The Scotsman

This play contains adult content throughout, including detailed descriptions of violence, torture and injury, strong language, sexual references and themes of death.
