A successful psychologist, Clare Attwood is a happy woman. Her work is satisfying, her partner attentive and supportive - she knows her mind and she knows how to live in a hectic urban environment. But, a series of ill-judged decisions incurs the wrath of Mrs Trevel, the mother of one of her young clients. As Mrs Trevel's behaviour becomes increasingly sinister and her obsession takes hold, this once confident psychologist is forced to re-appraise both her own life and that of the young people who are in her charge...
Written and directed by the multi award-winning Stephen Poliakoff (following his recent huge success with the BBC's The Lost Prince and Perfect Strangers).
Poliakoff is the consummate storyteller and in this fresh, gripping urban thriller, he has written an exceptionally exciting play that is in turns funny, moving and entertaining.
