A journalist and a much younger woman spend a turbulent and violent night in a hotel room. Read More >

Ian, a journalist, thinks he has been followed to the Leeds hotel room in which he spends the night with Cate. The girl, who is much his younger, is threatened, humiliated and raped before Ian’s paranoia is proved to be founded as a soldier breaks in, exploding the characters’ lives. 

The production contains explicit material which some may find disturbing and is recommended for those aged over 16.

Performed in German with English surtitles.
