A Guest

by Aaron Kilercioglu
Directed by Darren Sinnott

Friday 20 January 2023

Work in progress presented as part of Blue Elephant's residency programme.

A Guest follows a married couple who really are good people. They’re vegan, they’ve adopted, they care about others. Really. So when she brings a stranger to live in their house while he was away on his Yoga retreat, it shouldn’t come as a shock. They are good people after all. But, really, who is she? In this family nothing is as it seems.

A Guest is a riveting new play by Aaron Kilercioglu (For A Palestinian) about hospitality, the nuclear family, and our very British class anxiety.
