Thick As Thieves

11 October 2018 – 21 November 2018

Two women from very different worlds: Karen has built a picture-perfect life while Gail struggles to keep hers together. When Gail re-enters Karen’s life from out of the blue she brings with her everything Karen has been running from...

This tense, revealing play explores what it means to care for one another and asks who, in a time of increasing disconnect, we expect to look after us.
