Parlour Song

2 Male, 1 Female

Jez Butterworth Price: $12.99

A blackly hilarious exploration of deceit, paranoia and murderous desire, as the spirit of the Blues lands in leafy suburbia ...

Demolition expert Ned lives in a nice new house on a nice new estate on the edge of the English countryside

He loves his job. Barbecues. Car-boot sales. Fitness programmes. Outwardly his life is entirely unremarkable

Not unlike his friend and neighbour Dale

So why has he not slept a wink in six months?

Why is he so terrified of his attractive wife Joy?

And why is it every time he leaves on business, something else goes missing from his home?

"Itís a beauty. On the surface, it is a simple tale of marriage breakdown and suburban adultery but it also touches on a much deeper malaise - the way people suddenly feel disconnected from the lives they have built. And it is wickedly funny ... blissfully funny ... combines the comic, the erotic and the downright disconcerting with superb panache" ~ Telegraph

" ... exactly captures the mundane madness beneath the bland routine of affluence" ~ Guardian

" ... wickedly funny" ~ Financial Times
