 “An ingenious thriller about spies, surveillance and doubleness”
The Guardian

“A play that relentlessly exposes the extent to which life itself – identity, personality, family, love, hate, desire, even work – becomes increasingly meaningless, when people gradually lose all contact with the sharp and beautiful tang of truth”
The Scotsman

by Catherine Trieschmann

How The World Began“Sparks fly spectacularly in this drama by the American writer Catherine Trieschmann. A pregnant biology teacher who has offended small-town creationists begins to fear for her own survival and that of her unborn child. The play is gripping, disturbing and relevant. Trieschmann’s writing is taut and laced with irony”
