The Secret Rapture

Following the death of their father, his daughters Marion and Isobel must settle his Estate and safeguard the future of his younger wife, their stepmother Katherine. While Isobel, a partner in a design firm, takes pains to plan a fair and agreeable resolution, Marion, a determined and ambitious Junior Minister, views the situation quite differently. However, Katherine comes up with a far more radical proposal. The resulting power-play and undermining gamesmanship affects them all and those closest to them, with devastating consequences. Brilliantly and intelligently written, this is a witty, acerbic and intense examination of family relationships, human frailties and the unaccountable hand of fate. The plays contain scenes which have adult language and nudity.
