Set in a dysto­pi­an near future where pro­cre­ation is strictly con­trolled to breed out ill­nesses and genet­ic defects, a young girl iden­ti­fied as a psy­cho­path is being stud­ied in a labor­at­ory.

Reviewers say:
“Diana Kent’s play­ing of Mary, nervously fra­gile, fall­ing vis­ibly into the lonely par­al­lel world of her addic­tion, is espe­cially mov­ing” The Daily Telegraph,

“Diana Kent gives a haunt­ing per­form­ance . . .” The Times

“Kent makes Mary seem so fra­gile . . . she appears to be almost blown around the stage. A sober­ing por­tray­al of addic­tion.” British Theatre Guide
