The Six-Days World

By Elizabeth Kuti

Paperback £8.99£7.19

An emotionally involving family play that evokes the poignancy and the poison of the festive season - from the award-winning writer of The Sugar Wife.

A small town in the south east of England. Eddie returns home for a peaceful family Christmas for the first time in many years. But neither he nor his parents can forget or forgive themselves for the death of their other son, Richard, and the unanswered questions that surround it.

But not for much longer - it seems that Richard had secrets that are about to erupt into their lives. Dormant conflicts begin to surface as Eddie's family are confronted with the ghosts of Christmases past - along with some unwelcome revelations about the present.

Elizabeth Kuti's play The Six-Days World was first staged at the Finborough Theatre, London, in 2007.
