Peter and Veronica Pleasance are residents of Skylarks Residential Home for the Elderly. They haven't spoken to their high-flying son - Managing Director of Trixel Technologies - for over twenty years. When one of his employees, Oludayo Akano is kidnapped in Nigeria, son Jerome Akano decides it is time for some action.

Along with his friends Damien (trying to make a name for himself as an activist) and Chalky (along for the ride), they attack the residential home in order to hold Peter and Veronica Pleasance ransom in the name of Akano.

Siege - which came from an idea by writer Francesca Joseph, was developed through a series of improvisation workshops with the cast, who provided the dialogue for the piece.

This fast-moving tragi-comic piece hurtles towards a surprising climax.
