“We’d like to tell you about our home. Our dream home. How we got it. We’re good people. We hope we are. We try to be. And yet some of the things we’ve done- well… they’re not exactly nice. In fact they’re horrible. Some might even say shocking. But I’m sure once we’ve explained why we did what we did- then you’ll understand.”

An engaging young couple, Ollie and Jill, want to tell you about their dream home. Some of the things they did to get it, you might find shocking. But they want you to know they did it all for their baby. A wickedly comic satire about a young couple offered a ‘too good to be true’ way onto the property ladder.

Philip Ridley’s new play is a darkly funny morality play about a hot theatrical topic of the moment: the housing crisis. Fast-paced, provocative, and viciously sharp, this outrageous black comedy is a meditation on how far we will go to satisfy – and justify – materialistic greed, and how decent people are driven by desperation to stifle their consciences. Jill and Ollie develop an insatiable need for more. As a line in the play says, “enough is never enough.”
