  • The wait
    Mark and Anna are a couple struggling whilst moving home. Their relationship maintains a delicate balance, that is disrupted when their daughter's existence is questioned. As they wait for "The Kid" to come home, they begin to embody the very act of waiting that has characterised and stalled their lives.

    The play has been translated into English by Dr Luciana d'Arcangeli.
