Alix and Marcus have been brought to The Facility to be "corrected". If their condition is cured they may leave and return to the society. But if they fail, they will be sent to the Other Place, away from their friends and family forever. Failure is not an option, but in this confounding institution, where they only have each other, the greatest threat to their success is their own love.

Chillingly informed by real techniques that are used against LGBTQ+ people, Kavanagh's imaginative and timely play pitches nightmarish forces against our unerasable, shining humanity.


"Startling New Writing."

- Paul Vale, The Stage

"Excellent new dark satire."

- Dominic Cavendish, The Telegraph

"Kavanagh's writing is funny, moving and mesmerising all at once; in-yer-face theatre at its finest."

- Jeff Carpenter, The Prickle
