Who do you blame when your life is derailed? And how far will you go to get it back on track?

“Jeda de Bri and Finbarr Doyle have written a truly terrific representation of an aspect of contemporary life, with sure-fire dialogue and wonderfully layered levels of rage, fear and disintegrating trust. It’s a complex, unresolved treatment of a very modern insoluble problem; a serious, extraordinarily well-made play that is as thought-provoking as it is gripping.” Sunday Independent [break]
[stars-4] “Provocative and deeply human” The Arts Review [break]
“An agitated portrait of assured mutual destruction” The Irish Times [break]
[stars-5] “Superb… Tryst is unmissable” Meg.ie [break]
