What you’ll love... An excellent gripping new play which brings more than a touch of humanity to the difficult themes it explores. Written by Southampton writer, Maggie Neville, whose last two Nuffield plays were the popular comedies, The Grizzled Skipper and The Shagaround. Aisha waits behind twenty bolts and a stuck down letterbox for the killer she knows will inevitably find her. So why, then, when the meter man comes, does she invite him in, pay him to stay and ask him to help chop the onions? This play deals with the growing horror of honour based violence in England. That is, when a family demands the death of a child to atone for the "shame" she or he has supposedly brought upon them. But Aisha does not feel ashamed. She is determined to be heard before she dies, and her visitor finds himself enmeshed in a nightmare that was more than he envisaged when he walked up Aisha’s garden path...
