Once upon a time in what feels like another country, three children play hide and seek. Fifteen year old Elliott wears a crown, thirteen year old Maggie wraps herself in silk and little Finn draws on the walls. Together they watch a mobile phone intensely, willing it to come to life. Whose call are they waiting for and why are they home alone? The piece tells the story of Elliot, Maggie and Finn who have been abandoned by their mother and the choices they make to survive. It is incredibly well written, very funny at times, very dark at others. As hilarious as it is heart breaking, this is a tale of family ties as an uncertain future circles...
