The Most Humane Way to Kill a Lobster

Duncan Macmillan

PaperBack (01 Apr 2005)
"You put it in the freezer, so when you transfer it to the boiling water it doesn't feel a thing. I suppose that this is how I've felt recently. I've been in some deep freeze and suddenly I can feel steam in my face, I'm falling headlong into scalding water."

It's 2005, the sun is shining and Loretta is planning to make her daughter's favourite meal. But when Sophie stops talking to her, children start vanishing, and rooms begin to cry, Loretta can't help feeling that something is up and that she might have something to do with it.

A play about one woman's journey back to her childhood, to stop her past flooding into the present.
