“MISSING. Karla Richter, 24. Was last seen before she left for the supermarket. Four days ago”

Pizza night. Karla runs to the shop, and doesn't come home. Three friends begin a desperate search that takes them into the darkness of their past, where every trace of the missing girl tests their loyalties, loves and lies.

This exhilarating new play is a poetic thriller, a touching love story, and a powerful drama about exile, friendship and loss. 

Maria Milisavljevic won the prestigious German Kleist Award for Young Dramatists in 2013 for Abyss. This is its UK premiere. 

“An emotionally powerful thriller that rustles and whispers about loss” – Der Spiegel
