GOOD WITH PEOPLE
“We are well advised to keep on nodding terms with the people we used to be, whether we find them attractive company or not….” –Joan Didion
In Helensburgh, Scotland, barbed wire fence separates an idyllic coastal town from the site of its largest employer: Faselane nuclear base. Evan grew up inside, a base kid, while Helen protested at the gates. Years later, under the same roof, they are unable to shut out a savage moment from their past. In this sly, candid play Harrower teases his characters out of their corners and what might have been a chance encounter proves a defining moment.
