Ava Wong Davies’ play documents the blossoming relationship of a new couple.
At an old friend’s barbecue, she spies him, standing away from everyone else, beautiful and aloof. She is half cut on beer with ketchup dribbling down her chin. They couldn’t be more different, but as they get to know one another, they fall in love.
Everything is perfect, until it isn’t ... or maybe it never was.
Ava Wong Davies’ new play was developed as part of an Introduction to Playwriting group at the Royal Court.
"The script sounds almost novelistic in its language, beautiful at times. It is clear that Wong Davies is a delicate and thoughtful writer and there is daring in telling this explosive story so quietly."
