Kenny Emson

Published by Nick Hern Books

1 Male 1 Female

Nadia and Daniel have a secret

In fact, they have quite a few

They've just signed on the dotted line for a studio flat

Under a pseudonym Mr and Mrs White

And now - after years of school pick-ups, TV takeaways, and the day-to-day drudgery of married life - this is their chance to wipe the slate clean

But as much as they try and redefine the rules, and themselves, the outside world is closing in...

Ultra-contemporary, sexy and funny, Rust pushes the boundaries of trust, love and lust to the limit


"A superbly well-tuned piece of writing" ~ Evening Standard

"A sharp, swift, compelling two-hander ... a smart and arrestingly stylish piece of new writing" ~ The Times

"An astute, compelling account of an extramarital affair Emson writes with wit and fine emotional precision" ~ Financial Times

"A touching 75-minute duologue exploring the intentions, complications, and after-effects of extra-marital affair... acute and searingly fast-paced" ~ LondonTheatre1

"A smart, sharply written new play ... the storytelling is gripping, its observations are emotionally true, and its ideas are lively and thought-provoking ... tells its story with flair and fullness" ~ The Arts Desk
