A searing thriller that asks how well we actually know those closest to us.

Daniel Turner has it all. A devoted wife, two beautiful children and a teaching job he loves. But when allegations are made about his past, his world begins to crumble around him.

Can all the good he's done be erased by one pointed finger? What will it take to restore his loved ones' faith in him? And after this, can life ever be the same again?

Andrew Keatley's play Alligators premiered at Hampstead Downstairs, London, in 2016.

'Andrew Keatley's Alligators has serious bite… his characters feel utterly three-dimensional, his dialogue segues smoothly between unshowy chit-chat and impassioned speeches, and his spiralling narrative drips doubt into the audience's minds like a leaky tap'

- The Stage

'Has a claustrophobic power'

- Guardian

'Feels all too relevant in these prurient times… a worthwhile work that will make viewers think'

- British Theatre Guide
