Extinguished Things

Overview

“My neighbours leave their flat one morning but don’t return. Alton and Evie, married 40 years, no kids. I have their spare keys. I cannot resist.”

Molly’s neighbours haven’t come home. The spare keys are in the lock. She’s over the threshold. 

In a house that will never be lived in the same way again, Molly looks under the rock of a marriage, a family, an existence and brings to light what has been left in the dark. The voices of a past echoed in belongings. Items left behind. Extinguished things.

A play that pieces together the story of two lives intertwined, Extinguished Things is a vivid, complex and moving look at what it means to spend your life with someone, and the nature of what you leave behind.
