The estranged daughter of an exiled property tycoon returns to the family mansion on Ailsbury road. A gang of handymen-cum-gangsters also have designs on the house and its contents. Their paths are inexorably destined to cross and their histories are tragically interwoven. A play about class, power and the nature of the social contract.
