Tanya is dead. Killed by her husband. The play follows his journey from this point on. Why did he do it? Can he get away with murder? Is violence ever justified? Why didn't she just leave him? We all know the story…don't we?

Cliché is a new play set to challenge our preconceptions surrounding domestic violence.

The play begins just after the central character has killed his wife Tanya, whose lifeless body is present throughout. It is her 30th birthday and friends and family become increasingly concerned when she seemingly disappears.

Half in prose, half in verse, a story unravels of a desperate man who has murdered the woman he loves. A man despised by her friends and family who believe he has been mistreating her for years.
