Game



Mike Bartlett


Nick Hern Books

“Short, sharp, pulse-quickening... a dark, riveting drama packed with ideas” —Telegraph

“A knockout... I couldn’t look away.” —Financial Times

“Powerful... a fearsome vision of the future that is also an acute comment on the present” —The Arts Desk

“Audacious... its chutzpah [is] as exhilarating as its message is depressing” —Time Out

In a housing crisis, a young couple are offered a home of their own. But at what price?
Mike Bartlett's provocative play Game invites us to spy on a family as they embark on a dangerous new way to live.
