Frankie is running away from her abusive partner and his tight knit family. Tony, her partner's brother, finds her packing and is determined to stop the escape. Frankie is in the fight of her life, but she is physically outmatched, she has to talk her way out of this room. She digs deep into their shared history and touches on a softer, now hidden side of Tony’s humanity. He helps her to leave, unsure of the risk to himself.


Exploring themes of family, obligation, violence and love the audience was interested in physicalising the ties between these two characters with ropes and long lengths of elastic. This made the tension in the room literally visible as Zoe Hollyoak and Paul Grabovac negotiated the scenarios the audience created for them.
