Sleep With Me (1999)

Set over the course of a summer weekend in the country, Sleep With Me is a fast-moving, tragi-comic satire, exposing the emotionally and sexually chaotic lives of a group of friends.

'They're all coming apart . . . attacking one another . . . Affairs and heartbreak - most of the people I know. No one knows how to make themselves or anyone else happy. Marriage hardly seems worth the trouble.'

Sleep With Me premièred at the Royal National Theatre in April 1999.
