Two couples face up to consequences over a summer night
Two couples, one gay, one straightish, dance and drink into the night. The next morning the debris of a late night party greets their weary, hungover heads.
On top of it all, the mysterious David is coming to visit, sending our four protagonists into a spiral of self-doubt, nervous anticipation and recriminations. His charismatic presence hangs over this seductive and alluring chamber piece as these four friends reveal secrets, lies and their obsessive, undying love for David.
