Liz and Ben have been mates with Cynthia and Evan for years, and would never let anything get in the way of their friendship.

Not even the imminent collapse of civilisation itself could stop the zombie-like single-mindedness of buying the perfect house.
In his previous play commissioned by MTC, The Beast, Eddie Perfect’s wild satirical mind created a living nightmare out of middle-class aspirations. Vivid White goes even further, adding satirical songs to the mix for a truly merciless night of outrageous comedy directed by Dean Bryant (I’ll Eat You Last), starring Brent Hill (The Speechmaker) and two-time Helpmann Award-winner Verity Hunt-Ballard (Mary Poppins).
