Set a few years in our future, Britain has re-instated the death penalty and 'irredeemable' Richard Sanger's time is up. Now his brother, the victim's twin sister, a journalist and a 'spiritual advisor' are all here to watch him die. But behind the drapes of the execution room, everything hasn't quite gone to plan. This pitch black comedy by Caroline Bird looks at the death penalty in the ultimate 'British' way - with lots of paperwork and biscuits. 

Please be aware that this play contains very strong language and strong themes of rape. As such, it is not suitable for children or those of a sensitive nature.
