One bathroom. Two people. One day. A relationship witnessed in minute, devastating detail.
A story of intimacy, fragility and the darker side of love, Jack Thorne's Mydidae exposes the private and disturbing moments a couple share, and explores what becomes of a relationship when it is held together not only by love, but by fear, guilt and despair.
Mydidae is also available in the collection Jack Thorne Plays: One.

'Thorne has an uncanny ear for naturalistic dialogue... cannily ratchets up the tension.'Time Out
'Moves with a disarming stealth to a show-down that forces [the characters] to strip one another naked emotionally to the point of flaying.'Independent
