ABOUT THE SHOW

SOPHIE: When I spoke out against what was happening, that was when the real fun started.

Sophie, a professional with 20 years’ experience in her field, loses her job under questionable circumstances. Confused and hurt, she heads out of town looking for a way to assuage her humiliation and rage, eventually arriving at a quaint B&B run by the matronly Louise and her warm and welcoming nephew, Martin. After a few well-watered evenings, tongues loosen and a disturbing complicity develops between Martin and Sophie. Was her distraught drive to the country and unexpected arrival at the B&B as random as we think? A brilliant psychological thriller that keeps the audience in suspense to the very end.
