Ashes to Ashes - On a late summer's evening, Devlin and Rebecca retire to their living room. Threatened by Rebecca's recollections of an abusive ex-lover, Devlin relentlessly questions her in his need for a single truth. What follows is an intensely eerie testimony to Rebecca's seamless blending of what she knows of violence with the wider violence of the world.
Footfalls - May, wrapped in tatters, paces back and forth while engaging in conversation with her mother. As the play progresses, both May and her mother endure the obsessive ritual of May's pacing as they revisit haunting moments from evenings long past.
