A dark and twisted tale about deciding what’s more important – doing what’s right, or what’s right for you.

Deafened by the tick of her biological clock, Lorna pins all her hopes for true love on Allan. But she soon discovers that life in his isolated farmhouse raises disturbing questions, not happy endings…

As the horror of Allan’s world is exposed, will Lorna do what’s right or turn a blind eye to get what she wants?

Lou Ramsden’s play Hundreds and Thousands was first performed at Soho Theatre, London, in 2011.

‘Powerful and compelling… shocks and sudden moments of poetic insight’
Arts Desk

‘A nicely dark-hearted piece of work… foreboding grips the audience and Ramsden certainly plumbs the depths’
Time Out

‘Ramsden is unarguably a talented playwright. Hundreds and Thousands is interesting and challenging, illuminated by flashes of clever and original writing’
Exeunt Magazine

‘A dark and unsettling metaphor for the ego-centric emphasis on getting what you want, the me-world of today’
British Theatre Guide
