Over 5 years of imprisonment Alan’s life has been measured out in weekly visits from his family; slices of the normal life he’s left behind. Everything will be so much better once he’s finally out and back home for good. Won’t it?
A sharp and detailed portrayal of a man struggling to keep his head above water.

Weekly Rep writers Clare Lizzimore, Suhayla El-Bushra and Alistair McDowall are part of the Royal Court’s Jerwood New Playwrights programme, funded by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation, which aims to discover and support the next generation of world class UK playwrights. Responding to the format of the Open Court season, the Programme takes a unique approach in supporting three short runs of these writers’ plays instead of one full length production run.
