Meet Cassie. She's just moved in with Rose, who's just had a one-night stand with Mark, who's fed up of living with Tim, who secretly loves Rose, who's just using Tim to get to Mark (who she loves), who's just become very interested in Cassie.

Winner of the Evening Standard's Most Promising Playwright Award, Penelope Skinner delivers biting black comedy about trying to connect in a city where Facebook can seem like your closest friend.

True love and leprechauns.

The power of marketing.

The struggle of a modern feminist.

A burger-flipping romantic.

A black comedy through rose-tinted glasses.
