The play has brought Marber several prestigious awards at home and abroad. This sarcastic comedy, which deals with modern relationships without hesitation, hides painful and sad truths about close relationships under the surface. The tragicomedy reveals relationships between four protagonists: Alice - the stripper, Dan - the writer, Larry - the doctor and Anna - the photographer.
