Peter and Debbie are enjoying a cruise – a celebration of twenty years of marriage, and a break from their annoying teenagers. They befriend fellow passenger, Elsa Jean Krakowski, an eccentric American with a fondness for Donald Trump. There’s something slightly unsettling in her overeager friendliness… but there’s no point rocking the boat if you’re about to get off it.

Back home, in the comfort of suburbia, Elsa suddenly turns up on Peter and Debbie’s doorstep, unexpectedly. And when they look up their house guest online, unearthing some hair-raising evidence, their good nature is challenged as ever before. What kind of danger have they allowed to take up residence in their guest room? And can they bring themselves to say anything about it? Sometimes, the truth is just too impolite.

Roles Available:
Note: all gender presentations welcome for all characters.

Peter
Stage age: 40s
Accent: RP
Description: Peter is the epitome of the middle-class British man, always appearing “mordant and slightly cross”. Although he values his family and their comfortable suburban life, his reluctancy to rock the boat sometimes leads him into awkward situations.

Elsa
Stage age: 40s-60s
Accent: American (any)
Description: Peter and Debbie meet “drawling, confident and unabashed” Elsa on cruise, where she invites herself to stay with them. Elsa’s intentions and background are shrouded in mystery, causing increasing tension and suspicion as her true nature begins to reveal itself.

Debbie
Stage age: 40s
Accent: RP
Description: Peter’s wife. A practical and forthright woman with a sharp wit. She is more assertive and outspoken than her husband, often taking the lead in social situations. Her protective nature comes to the forefront when she perceives any threat to her family’s stability.

Alex
Stage age: late teens/ early 20s
Accent: RP
Description: Debbie and Peter’s son. Alex is a typical late teen ‘adolescent’; video-game obsessed, messy and sarcastic, constantly finding excuses not to spend time with his family. Elsa’s visit opens his eyes to the wonders of exercise and a life outside of his bedroom.

The Neighbour
Stage age: 60s
Accent: British (any)
Description: Peter and Debbie’s Neighbour. A drawling and dull man whose attempts at fixing a shared fence are consistently forgotten. His constant intrusions on the family’s drama are met with annoyance and frustration.

Rosie
Stage age: mid-late teens
Accent: RP
Description: Peter and Debbie’s daughter. Rosie is the youngest member of the family, bright, curious, and sometimes precocious. She is more attuned to the underlying tensions in her family than her brother, and her curiosity often leads her to ask uncomfortable questions and delve deeper into situations that the adults around her would prefer to gloss over.

PC Junkin
Stage age: 30s and upward
Accent: British (any)
Description: A local police officer. Although he only makes a brief appearance, he is a pleasantly oblivious addition to the already chaotic environment of Peter and Debbie’s home.
