A vivaciously funny, sexy, bleak and angry play about a couple trapped in a cycle of love and lust.
Set over the course of a single fiery night in a lounge belonging to Jo and her long-term partner, Harry. In the opening scene, Jo and Harry are watching porn while having sex. It soon becomes clear that they are locked in a relationship based on desire, dependency and dirty games. Into this unstable mix walks Kerry, a colleague of Harry’s, who thinks her partner might have raped her.
‘The One’ explores taboos about gender roles and sexual violence whilst seriously engaging with femininity and feminism in the contemporary world. It is achingly funny and harshly realistic.
