“At our time of life, we simply cannot deal with this shit.”

Two retired nuclear scientists in an isolated cottage by the sea as the world around them crumbles.

Together they are going to live forever on yogurt and yoga, until an old friend arrives with a frightening request.

“To let them know your plans.”

Olivier award-winning Lucy Kirkwood (Chimerica, NSFW) returns to the Royal Court with this new play, directed by James Macdonald (Escaped Alone, The Wolf From The Door, Circle Mirror Transformation).

Cast: Francesca Annis, Ron Cook, Deborah Findlay
