Written by Neil Labute, author of The Shape of things to come, Fat pig and The Mercy Seat and Some Girl, this highly entertaining, 100-minute two-hander will pull the rug from under your feet so often you will end up feeling breathless.
The play starts, intriguingly enough with Bobby, a handsome carpenter played by Matthew Fox (of LOST fame), who is invited over to his sister Betty’s cabin to help her shift some piles of books left behind by a student tenant.
Bobby accepts, suspecting little from this innocuous family invitation. But Bobby and Betty begin to bicker and a dark comedy of sibling rivalry escalates into a psychological thriller, bursting with savage conflict.
It quickly becomes clear that Betty is hiding a terrible secret in her cabin in the woods.
Dare you dig into Betty’s secret past?
