A searing thriller about paranoia, social divisions, and the creeping threat of the intruder, by the Bruntwood Prize-winning playwright.
Alex has his flat. His home. He’s building a life with Clare. Nothing can derail his happiness – he just wishes those kids would stop hanging round outside his house. But they’re just kids, with nothing to do. They’re not dangerous, right?
