A riveting new dark comedy by Rob Drummond, presented and performed by Birds of Paradise Theatre Company. If you are capable of killing and disposing of a body, can you really call yourself disabled? The near future. Chris never wanted to end up here. She’s a proud woman and hates asking for help but when her condition deteriorated, she had no choice but to claim benefits. Ralph believes in the new system. He knows it can work for Chris. He’s here today, in her home, to assess her. To prove to her that there has been no mistake – she is fit and capable of working. Can Chris persuade him to change his mind? And, if not, how far is she willing to go to save herself?
