The cosy world of coupledom has insulated four friends from the challenges of a complicated world. They’ve shared lunches, brunches, art exhibitions and trips to Kakadu. Their perfect cosmopolitan bubble seems hermetically sealed, until one couple casually drops a bombshell – they have decided to split up. And there’s no way to predict or control the devastation that follows.

Expecting your friends to stay the same even as the world changes is the sort of self-defeating folly that acclaimed playwright Joanna Murray-Smith loves to skewer. In this razor-edged new comedy, beloved actor Catherine McClements (The Other Place) and director Sarah Goodes (Switzerland) remind us why cultural sophistication is no help at all when dealing with the everyday upheavals of modern life.
