A famous artist invites old friends to her luxurious new home for a long awaited reunion. But the celebration comes to an abrupt end when the host suffers a horrific accident. An almost unthinkable plan starts to take shape: could her suffering be the group’s next work of art?
Published 10 years after his critically-acclaimed Shopping and F**king, this piece by Mark Ravenhill is an unflinching look at the vulnerability of friendship, the power of resentment, and a deep-seated yearning to create something truly memorable.
"Terrific...Mr. Ravenhill’s writing has a hypnotic beauty...Its sneaky, almost guilty-pleasure appeal is linked to our natural identification with these attractive, articulate young men and women as they coolly rationalize behavior that, seen from the outside, might look more than a little monstrous." -NY Times
"This piece made me laugh, cringe, and think a great deal in a mere sixty minutes...go see pool (no water).” —The Huffington Post
