Sixteen-year-old Kelly has never known her Dad. It turns out he's from Iraq, which her mum never mentioned, and he's brought an ancient Mesopotamian vase as some kind of present. But Kelly doesn't want a vase, she wants her dad to stay and get to know her. It's not the reunion either of them expected and for Kelly it's the beginning of an epic and dangerous journey.

Press Quotes

'I was left full of admiration for this dramatist's combination of power and precision... this is dramatic writing of a very high order indeed.'

Daily Telegraph

'I cannot recall when I last saw so much, on both narrative and thematic levels, crammed into a one-act 80-minute play without the whole thing bursting messily under the strain.'
