When it's too dangerous to run away, the outlook for tomorrow becomes increasingly dark...

Beezer and O’Rourke live on the fringes of society in a dingy London flat, struggling to make ends meet. Despite living life at the bottom of the heap, the savage banter of their dysfunctional friendship keeps the pair afloat.

When their dodgy landlord, Dollar, makes them a ‘business’ proposition, O’Rourke finds himself selling out for the cost of a few months’ rent. The price? Take care of a mystery special package. Just for a few months. Easy job. Easy money.

As the weight of a heavy conscience becomes too much to bear, the outlook for tomorrow becomes increasingly dark, with a storm brewing on the horizon. Cast features Mark Hadfield (Mary Shelley's Frankenstein), Alec Newman (The Motherf**ker with the Hat, National Theatre), David Schaal (The Inbetweeners), Cyril Nri (The Barbershop Chronicles, National Theatre) and the professional stage debut of Niamh James. 

O'Hare's first black comedy-drama in our 2019 season shines a light on complicity and its intriguing web of secrets and lies woven behind closed doors.
