Content warning [May contain spoilers]

What does it mean to watch and be watched? In an age of reality television, this new play examines the human tendency towards voyeurism and our willingness to observe the suffering of others.

Ava has an ideal life. A prominent GP, she has a thriving practice, a loving husband, and a talented child.

Tensions arise upon the appointment of a new patient, triggering the disintegration of both her personal and professional lives. Within three months, Ava is giving evidence against her husband in a destructively public murder trial. As she constructs a narrative of the past three months to an investigator, her distraught daughter begins to piece together an alternative course of events that would exonerate her father.

As events spiral out of her control and the paranoia of being watched amplifies Ava’s anxiety and shame, these tragic events of Ava’s life play out in the most public of forums.
