Can sisterly love survive the chaos of the universe?


‘This is the kind of play that makes me want to punch the air in celebration… emotionally involving as well as intellectually satisfying… ranges from profoundly funny to deeply moving’ — WhatsOnStage

From Lucy Kirkwood, writer of the highly acclaimed Chimerica and The Children, comes another exciting work. Alice is a scientist. She lives in Geneva. She is embarking on the most exciting work of her life.

Jenny is her sister. She lives in Luton. She spends a lot of time Googling.

When tragedy throws them together, the collision threatens them all with chaos.

Featuring Mel Dodge, Catherine Downes, Gavin Rutherford, Harriet Prebble, and Dryw McArthur.


‘Fascinating… Kirkwood has proved that she is a dramatist of dauntless ambition’ — The Guardian

‘… tackles giant themes with a swaggering showmanship’ — Telegraph

‘Wildly ambitious, often very funny… huge ideas’ — Time Out

‘Intelligent, impassioned… exhilarating in its ambition’ — The Times
