Description - Abandonment by Kate Atkinson

A play about love, death, identity and evolution, from the bestselling and highly acclaimed novelist.

Elizabeth, forty-something, childless, recently separated, just wants to be alone. She's moved into a converted Victorian mansion, alive with history, character, woodworm and rot. But worse than that she's besieged by invaders of the human kind. Her best friend, her sister, their mother, the builder and a photographer are all determined to make their mark. And a former inhabitant of the house, disturbed from her resting place by Elizabeth's arrival, revisits her own long-forgotten past.

Kate Atkinson's play Abandonment was first performed at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in 2000.

'Atkinson has arrived at theatrical customs with a huge amount to declare' - Guardian

'Witty, intelligent and absorbing... terrific comic dialogue' - Scotsman
