    Synopsis: With her egotistical ex-boyfriend, Dave, out of her life – for now! – Ann, a young professional at a struggling newspaper, takes the opportunity to rebuild her shattered confidence by -typically! – forming a ‘rebound relationship’ with Patrick, the office bore. Normality, of sorts!, is restored until Dave returns on a macho mission to try and win her back… With a barrage of belittling mockery unleashed on Ann’s new love interest, and home truths mercilessly revealed at every turn, the question is who – if anyone! – will conquer this testosterone-charged battle-ground and ultimately get the girl…

    What the critics had to say.....
    NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Chilling, black comedy of sexual manners...Billie Piper, in an impressive West End debut...Treats enthralls" ALICE JONES for THE INDEPENDENT says, "The production promises much but once you get beneath the shiny wrapping, the treat inside is really rather disappointing." CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "This is a mechanical and soulless little play that reminds us why Hampton has never quite made it into the premier league of British dramatists." BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "Modestly amused."
