Description

Six friends are determined to escape for a debauched weekend in the country

Blitzed on uppers, downers, blue movies and bellinis, the six twenty-something friends ensconced at Appleseed Rectory for the weekend are reeling in an hallucinatory haze of sex and seduction.

But mysterious ‘Johnny’ begins to unsettle the other guests. And as Friday melts into Saturday and Saturday spirals into Sunday and sobriety sets in, the romp descends into something altogether more sinister.

‘It’s transfixing – At first it’s funny. It teases, exaggerates, deliberates. Then it becomes ferocious, stricken, moving’ The Times

‘Very funny, extremely clever’ Guardian
