Brutal Cessation

Brutal Cessation

by Milly Thomas

A relationship rotting. Purgatory. Is having no reason to stay a reason to leave? At what point does the abuser become the abused? And why aren't we more afraid of women? Two actors, one couple, swapping roles. A savage new play exploring violence in relationships, our expectations of gender and what happens when we're no longer in love but refuse to let go.
