Suitable for Adult Groups
Winner of the Scott Salver Competition 2012, this powerful drama describes the tensions within a once happy family which surface during a cocktail party.
Claire has invited her brother Steven and his partner Louise for drinks. There is tension in the air from the moment they arrive. Claire's cocktails and fusion cuisine do little to blend the unlikely ingredients of the evening into something which Steven finds palatable. When Joe, their father arrives, Steven makes it clear that this is one ingredient which just doesnt fit into the mix as far as hes concerned. The chemical reactions are explosive as wounds open up and the reasons for the rift in a once happy family become evident. Emotions and tensions run high as the five very different characters are caught in a moment where past and present fuse. We are left wondering if there is enough in the mix to allow the different elements to come together.
