A stunningly ambitious work from one of the UK's most influential playwrights.
Someone sneezes. Someone can't get a signal. Someone shares a secret. Someone won't answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone's not ready to talk. Someone is her brother's mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone's never felt like this before.
In this fast-moving kaleidoscope, more than a hundred characters try to make sense of what they know. Premiered at the Royal Court in September 2012.

'The wit, invention and structural integrity of Churchill's work are remarkable... She never does the same thing twice' The Telegraph
'A wonderful web of complex emotions, memories, secrets and facts' A Younger Theatre
