Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh. Through May 7, 2016


A Traverse Theatre Company, Theatre Royal Bath Ustinov Studio and Bush Theatre co-production.

As Alice and Ben settle into their beautiful new flat they realise that the family across the hall hope to be more than just good neighbours.

Soon, Juliette, Gilles, and their son François are wearing out the welcome mat; suggesting drinks, hors d’oeuvres and dancing. Things begin to heat up as innocent invitations lead to passionate encounters and unsettling revelations.

Written by award-winning Quebecois playwright Catherine-Anne Toupin and directed by former Royal Shakespeare Company Artistic Director, Sir Michael Boyd, Right Now is a play with a dark heart, a disquieting exploration of one woman’s crisis and darkest desires. It walks a delicate line between playful laughter and deep trauma, teasing and thrilling audiences from beginning to end.
