In the opulent drawing room of the Presidential Palace, a Western photojournalist awaits the return of the dictator. She is here to take his portrait. The dictator’s wife, her best friend and an interpreter wait with her. Prada shoes, vodka glasses and light fingers tap out the time. He is late, very late…

All four women harbour secrets and suspicions. All four are in danger. This is the day that revolution comes to the streets. Abi Morgan’s devastating play allows us a glimpse into the minds of four women as their world turns.
