“Yesterday, something clicked. It was like – enough. ENOUGH.”
Alice’s mum knows how to bring up her child; how to be a good parent. It’s just a shame that not everyone else sees things her way. When she notices little Billy eating Cheetos on his way to nursery, it kick-starts a spiral of obsession and double standards. A beautiful and rhythmic play about the impossibilities of living up to the high standards we set for ourselves and others.
