A visceral and shocking play about the fragility of friendship and the jealousy and resentment inspired by success.

A famous artist invites her old friends to her luxurious new home. For one night only, the group is back together. But celebrations come to an abrupt end when the host suffers an horrific accident. As the victim lies in a coma, an almost unthinkable plan starts to take shape: could her suffering be their next work of art? The group is ecstatic in its new found project until things slip out of their control. To the surprise of all, the patient awakes... If you’d been in that hospital with us then maybe, maybe you’d have felt the same.
