Three pairs of people – one of acquaintances, one of strangers, one of lovers – are taken from their ordinary lives and thrown into captivity. Without any sense of who or why, each pair finds their own way of staying alive. Exploring the psychological effects of semi-solitary confinement and the possibilities of torture, mutilation, and sexual assault*, this play follows three relationships through rising tensions and desperation and the ever-decreasing hope of being set free.
