Trailer HERE
A two-handed drama that follows the process of an annual work review gone horribly wrong. Jo, a senior manager, needs to appraise head of department Nicky's work. Nicky just wants to keep working. What follows is a power-play of manipulation, subtext and subterfuge that explores explosive consequences arising out of a seemingly innocent conversation.

"Absolutely excellent play to watch. So clever. Dramatic, comedic, and a sudden pratfall I wasn't expecting that was hilarious" ***** Edinburgh Review

"Very funny, with some wonderful linguistic thrusting and parrying" **** Scottish Field

"In this perfect intimate setting, the well measured tone and tempo of the dialogue meanders around a convoluted maze of twists and turns with humorous, dramatic punch" ***** Edinburgh Guide

"A classically structured two-hander that captures the unjustifiable, often unaccounted for, behaviour enabled by office hierarchies that wouldn’t be tolerated anywhere else" **** The Scotsman

"A battle of wits... tight, well-paced and engrossing" ***** Reviews Hub

"A tense relatable thriller... genius" **** Bohemian Britain
