By Jason Hewitt

A woman. A man. Trapped. Isolated from the outside world, games and fantasies blur into memories neither wishes to confront. Claustrophobia puts relationships under the microscope and asks – “what does it mean to be in control?”
Punctuated with moments of humour and tenderness, this minimalist, haunting psychological thriller is a must see this Fringe. More info and booking...
