Lucky Dog by Leo Butler:

Over Christmas dinner Sue and Eddie gossip and discuss the good times they used to have together before their son left home, leaving a void in their lives. But then Eddie disappears with the dog and their neighbor's son comes round to liven things up and stay the night. Through the creation of a seemingly banal universe, Butler creates an intense atmosphere of guilt and suspicion within this couple's world.

Published to tie in with the Royal Court premiere in May 2004
