Parlour Song by Jez Butterworth

Parlour Song

Jez Butterworth
Almeida
Directed by Ian Rickson

Demolition expert Ned lives in a nice new house on the edge of the English countryside. He loves his job. Barbeques. Car boot sales. His life is entirely unremarkable. So why has he not slept a wink in six months? Why is he so terrified of his wife? Parlour Song is a satirical exploration of deceit, paranoia and desire in leafy surburbia.

Contains strong language and scenes of a sexual nature.
