Having just met, Hirst and Spooner retire to Hirst’s comfortable North London home for a nightcap.  As a past that they share unravels, we wonder if they really do know each other or are they just performing an elaborate charade?

The comedy and the ambiguity intensify with the arrival of Foster and Briggs: are they Hirst’s staff or his captors?  All four inhabit a no man’s land between past and present, imagination and reality.
