Outside, sitting in her Volvo, Diane is peering through the smokey wetness, watching the woman inside the schoolroom. She is talking to the windscreen wipers: "Just walk in. Just do it." Such a small and simple act. Joining the choir. How to know? How to feel that slight quickening of future fear? This darkly cruel and witty thriller is the story of a choir driven by the Machiavellian obsession of their Choir Mistress. The individual stories of the members, their damaged and damaging lives link themes of fear, sexual betrayal, abuse and loneliness. Amongst the smallness of their very human concerns there is a genuine terror, a man haunted by his past; the violence and madness of which bleeds into the lives of the choir. This is a tragedy strongly laced with humour.
