John is afraid to go to sleep; his father hasn’t come home and he doesn’t know what is happening.

David Mamet’s play considers the breakdown of a family, pinpointing the moment when childhood suddenly vanishes.

Kim Cattrall, who stars, was last seen in the West End in the Peter Hall-directed Whose Life Is It Anyway? at the Duke Of York’s. The British-born actress, who grew up in Canada, is best known for playing the sassy Samantha in Sex And The City.
