A successful day for Emily - interior designer and total bitch - is throttling her husband Kevin and tormenting his best friend Raymond to their mutual satisfaction. A good day for Raymond is venting his frustrations on Emily's fine form and getting a glimpse of her even finer daughter Shelley. A tolerable day for Kevin is just avoiding Emily - until he meets a surprising young woman who sees through his dim wits to the kindly man beneath...Emily's a maelstrom of malice, but there's only so far she can push Kevin and Raymond before the storm finally breaks. Stripping the veneer of pretension and civility, Connolly's thrillingly repulsive characters are unveiled through breathless interior monologue to reveal the genuine and grotesque urges that drive them all into a violent climax.
