The mystery of other people is at the heart of Nick Dear's new play, "The Miracle of Reason ".
When Josh and Amanda escape London for a weekend of passion in a remote house, a game of truth serves to chip away at the
couple's veneer of civilisation. The question "When was the last time you were frightened?" leads to a searing and unsettling encounter.
When the layers of logic for their for protection are gone, what will happen?
With Frances Tomelty [Amanda McLeish] and Jasper Britton [Joshua James].
