Treats

While her bullying and unfaithful boyfriend, Dave, is reporting in Iraq, Ann seizes the opportunity to change the locks and take up with her infinitely more considerate colleague Patrick. But Patrick proves no match against savagery and charisma when Dave comes crashing home, determined to win back his girl. First staged at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 1976, this updated version demonstrates that, in love, our instinct for making the wrong decisions remains as sharp as ever. Treats was revived at the Garrick Theatre, London, in February 2007, following a tour to Windsor, Malvern, Bath and Richmond.
