Rachel has it all: marriage, house, career. So why does she suddenly have this creeping feeling? Did she leave something behind? Or is there something in the walls...? Her husband thinks she needs time; her psychiatrist suggests positive thinking. But then the visions start. A darkly comic play about the underside of domesticity, the complexity of the brain in chaos, and the thin line between sinking and survival.

Playwright Clare Lizzimore's first play Mint was produced at the Royal Court in London and long-listed for the prestigious Bruntwood Prize. As a director, her production of Mike Bartlett's Bull at The Young Vic received the 2015 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre,premiered at Sheffield Theatres and then transferred Off-Broadway to the 59E59 Theaters.
