"Nothing sleeps out here, Wally. All the rats. The foxes. The weasels. Knackered and starving and scared. You don't sleep out here, Wally. You fall asleep out here, something creeps up and eats you." West waits in a burnt-out farmhouse, on Dartmoor, in the depths of winter, for two associates from the city. The wine has been poured and the revolver loaded. But who is waiting upstairs? Jez Butterworth's atmospheric, compelling new play follows his previous successes at the Royal Court including the multi award-winning MOJO and THE NIGHT HERON, both directed by Ian Rickson. "a sense of menace invades every conversation like a razor-blade...knock-out one-liners." Time Out "Ian Rickson directs a compelling and beautifully acted production." Daily Telegraph
