Southern Comfort

The play is set in Mike’s run-down and filthy flat. He arrives home ready to settle down for a night in with a few beers, fish ‘n’ chips and some telly. His night is interrupted by urgent text messages and then a visit from his ex-partner Andi.

Matters are further complicated by the fact that Andi had recently taken out a restraining order on Mike. They have heated and terse conversations about maintenance money for their daughter Shelby. Eventually Mike convinces Andi to leave. Shortly after Mike’s secret boyfriend, Simon, arrives and the two men go to bed. Andi unexpectedly returns and discovers Mike and Simon in bed together. Heated confrontations and confessions ensue. Andi makes threats before Mike ends up killing her on impulse.
