A chilling emotional thriller about two men and a woman bound together by the secrets of surviving a childhood in a Glasgow tenement.

Ken is a vacuum cleaner salesman obsessed with the riddance of dirt and dust. Clare got rid of her baby twenty years before. Frank wants to rid himself of the shadow of his violent faith. So, is murder ever justified? In defence of a child? And if you're never caught, do you get away with it, or are you forever in hiding?

Part of the Instant Playscript series - designed to reflect the immediacy of the play on the stage. Printed only a few days before opening night, the aim is to give audiences at the theatre and readers all over the world instant access to the best of current new writing as it hits the stage.
