★★★★★

‘A resonant and powerful play’

WhatsOnStage

★★★★

‘a fiendishly clever play’

The Guardian

★★★★

‘Chilling resonance…the corrupting business of buying a house, the greed, the gazumping, the trudging of hime into an investment…Richard Twyman’s marvellous production’

The Observer

★★★★

‘What’s particularly striking is the play’s enduring topicality’

The Times

★★★★

‘Scintillating social satire’

The Sunday Times

★★★★

‘The play is chilly and clever, perceptive about the hollow language of greed and suburban conformism’

Evening Standard

Clair works in real estate.

Mike and Liz are selling.

James wants to buy.

He’ll only deal with Clair.

Selling houses. It’s not forever. Who knows what I’ll do? Maybe make a killing and just… disappear. That’s right. Vanish.

‘A skilfully written, well-crafted exposition of the horrors just beneath the civilized surface of our lives; it is at once a delicious satire on yuppie moral and emotional bankruptcy and a bleak, black comedy thriller’ The Independent
