It’s dusk. Mother and father are in their bedroom, dressing in preparation for Parents’ Evening at their only daughter’s primary school. During this rare opportunity to check in, the couple embarks on a volatile, passionate and surprising confrontation that challenges every one of their life choices. The play is a painfully witty, perceptive exploration of the landlines of parenting in modern marriage.
