Rare Revival

“Be clean, be quick, be top, be best”

Her husband wants her dead, but Marion’s too busy to notice. With the London housing market booming, she spots a chance to make a killing of her own by flipping a house. There’s just one problem – the current tenants are her closest friends. Undeterred, she hatches a plan and makes them an offer they can’t refuse. A deal is done, and an exchange is made. But is the price worth paying?

Fifty years on from its premiere, Artistic Director Stella Powell-Jones directs this timely revival of Caryl Churchill’s wickedly funny first play about power, property, and possession.


This production contains haze, gun shots, loud noises, strong language, and references to self-harm, suicide, murder, and sexual assault.
