In the first act of this psychological thriller two couples in unstable marriages inadvertently exchange partners in a night of adulterous encounters. The situations in the separate hotel rooms are so similar that at times both couples speak the same words. While Leon and Jane go through with the infidelity, Pete and Sonja do not, and the repercussions for both marriages are profound. In the second act we are introduced to a psychologist and her husband. The psychologist has disappeared on a deserted road after her car broke down. Was she murdered and, if so, why? As the play progresses and revelatory details accumulate, these two seemingly disparate stories become linked in a chain of coincidences that leads to an utterly unexpected conclusion.
"…clever, provocative, elliptically resonant and writerly…" —NY Times. "What Andrew Bovell does is to show us multifaceted characters, fragments of the whole and how we project ourselves to others…a mix of innovative drama and suspense…[and] stylish wit…" —CurtainUp. "Bovell explores love, marriage, strangeness, intimacy, trust, betrayal, obsession, self-punishment and detachment with generous emotional intelligence." —Observer (London).
