Synopsis

"I hadn't seen Dan in years when we got together. Within twenty-four hours, we'd seen everything. We'd made love together, bathed together, slept together. He'd seen my body. I'd seen his. Which bit are you meant to fall in love with?"

After seeing everything, Shona is to move in with her boyfriend Dan. When faced with the blind and erotic Maria, Edward struggles to see her passion and to articulate his feelings. As their respective evenings unfold simultaneously on stage, illumination comes to all concerned in Glyn Cannon's innovative and searing exploration of love and relationships.
