Description

Acclaimed novelist, screenwriter and playwright Anthony Horowitz was commissioned to write a play as part of the National Theatre's New Connections programme for young people and the result is a short play which is both funny and poignant for a cast of six.

Gradually, as tensions mount, squabbles ensue and each young person's story starts to emerge, the location is found to be an institution - reinforced by the final grim, chilling echoes of doors slamming and being locked.
