One night in January 2010 an earthquake in Haiti leaves around a hundred thousand people dead and almost two million homeless. Meanwhile, somewhere in a leafy North London suburb, a group of six individuals convene over avocado and prawns, followed by a monkfish stew. They struggle with worries over their mortgages, their mobile phone tariffs, their Facebook friends, their careers, their love lives, their diets, their alcohol intake, their holiday plans and whether or not any of them will be able to make any lasting impression on history.

Review
Just about the most original and extraordinary writer of drama we have...a boldly visionary poet... a political Beckett... a flamingly original writer we ignore at our peril. - Liz Lochhead,  National Poet Of Scotland
