Theatre Royal Bath Productions today releases production images for the UK premiere of Donald Margulies' award-winning black comedy The Model Apartment.

1980s. Max and Lola, two elderly Holocaust survivors, are retiring to Florida from Brooklyn, finally able to escape their difficult daughter and life's stresses and strains. But their new life in the Sunshine State turns dark very quickly. Their deluxe condo is not ready to live in, they've been asked to stay temporarily in a 'model apartment', and then history begins to catch up with them in the most devastating way.
In this brilliant black comedy, Max and Lola discover that if they are ever truly going to be able to retire, they must first confront the demons of their past.
