How far would you go to protect your family?
George and Margaret have three children and will do anything to protect them. After war breaks out and threatens their safety, they decide to hide in their bunker, wait for it to end and attempt to carry on with their lives. The days and months pass, the children grow and they seem to remain safe and secure.
As questions begin to arise, cracks start to form that threaten to break this family apart forever. Yet where do they have to go? And who can they turn to except each other?
This claustrophobic and intimate new play from Abrahan Arsis, explores the irrational measures we can be driven to, to keep those we care about alive.
