Just because you appear to have secrets don't mean your secrets are all that interestin'.

A young female soldier returns from Afghanistan to a home she no longer recognises or connects with. She has proved herself in combat but her hardest battle is yet to come, as she navigates family politics, old relationships, and the memory of betrayal. From the deserts of a modern war to the battleground of a family kitchen, Morgan Lloyd Malcolm's explosive new play delves into one woman's quest for identity and a place she can call home.

Nominated for Charles Wintour Most Promising Playwright Award (Evening Standard Awards)

‘If this outstanding debut from Morgan Lloyd Malcolm doesn’t feature [in the end of year awards] I’ll be staggered, as it packs - and elegantly - into 75 minutes what most dramas could only dream of fitting into double the time... a terrific addition to the West End.’ 4 stars – Evening Standard

‘A major find... she writes with such lightness of touch and such depth of feeling that the evening never slackens its grip. It packs a huge amount in... recommended.’ 4 stars – Daily Telegraph

‘There are great lines and powerful moments... Writing of this calibre is a pleasure to good to spoil.’ – The Times
