By Dafydd James.

A darkly comic story of love, loss and prejudice.

When Stevie's boyfriend Matthew becomes seriously ill, the couple move into a new house, complete with wheelchair access and a downstairs toilet. However, Cardiff's multicultural Grangetown is far from the peaceful idyll they were hoping for. The walls are thin and you can hear everything, even whispered conversations if you put your ear to the wall. As Matthew's condition worsens, Stevie is drawn into a sinister story happening next door.

'A bizarre and beguiling must-see show.' (My Name is Sue, The Stage)

'Brilliant...hysterically funny and beautifully played.' (My Name is Sue, Time Out)
