Spain, 2013. Against all odds, young graduate Sofia has got a job as PA to one of the wealthiest bankers in the country. But her mother has her doubts – did Sofia give more than a good interview to get it?

In a subtle game of cat and mouse, split loyalties and questionable morals, Alexandra Wood's thrilling two-hander looks at the complexities of a mother–daughter relationship, the growing argument between rich and poor, and a young woman stuck in between.

Merit was performed at the Theatre Royal Plymouth in 2015, and received its London premiere at the Finborough Theatre in 2016.

‘A rapacious banker, corrupt, corrupting, you thought he would steal my soul.’

Press Quotes

'a gripping drama... the moral questions raised deliver a punch in the age of austerity'

Guardian

'explores broader ideas such as our responsibilities towards others when money is short... there is a sharp, sardonic wit in the cut and thrust between the two characters'

BritishTheatre.com

'engaging and entertaining'
