Elizabeth just wants to be alone. She's moved to her new house, a converted Victorian mansion alive with history, character, woodworm, dry rot and a suspected case of deathwatch beetle. But worse than that, she's besieged by invaders of the human kind. Her best friend, her sister, their mother, the builder and a photographer are all determined to make their mark. And a former tenant, disturbed from her resting-place by Elizabeth's arrival, stirs long-forgotten memories. But when it comes to the crunch, which one of them will be there for her? A play about love, death, identity and evolution, Abandonment
is a delicious mix of comedy and Chaos Theory, reminding us that the past is not as far away as we might think.Performers James Cunningham, Michelle Gomez, Kathryn Howden, Patricia Kerrigan, Neil McKinven, Sheila Reid, Elaine C Smith.
