“But you can’t take me home to your place? Why not? What’s there that you don’t want me to see?”

In an unnamed Middle Eastern desert, Major Aria and her mercenary accomplice are on a secret mission to meet up with a New Zealander who’s defected to ISIS with his Arab wife. Meanwhile, at the Auckland Writer’s Festival, kindergarten teacher Miranda gets an offer she can’t refuse from a charming American visitor. Soon these six lives are inextricably entwined in a world-wide web of intrigue, danger and espionage.

Renowned New Zealand playwright, novelist and librettist Stuart Hoar has won a Bruce Mason Playwriting Award and is the recipient of both a Robert Burns Fellowship and a Katherine Mansfield Memorial Fellowship. Premiered by Auckland Theatre Company, his latest work is a taut, tight, torn-from-the-headlines thriller – where domestic events play out on a world stage.

A world premiere for your eyes only!
