Two plays by Caryl Churchill in one volume which played as a double bill. In Ice Cream, Americans James and Vera travel to England to find James's relatives. They locate third cousins who are decidedly low life and become entangled in a murder. In the powerful vignettes of Hot Fudge, the competative games of various professionals and their spouses present an amoral world where money is all and lies are the only truth.
