Fourplay is a serendipitous love story, exploring the themes of obsession and communication. Alice, a care attendant, is in a relationship with Tom, an actor. Tom is currently rehearsing for a role as the lover of Natasha - and then there is Jack, a social misfit with whom Alice works. As Alice and Tom's relationship disintegrates, Tom begins to take his role as Natasha's lover too seriously. Alice turns to Jack for comfort, not knowing that he has been stalking her for two years. As each relationship falls apart, new and unpredictable bonds form between the four characters, redefining their notions of love and drastically altering their futures.
"Not only is the play set in autumn but, charting the dissolution of a relationship over time, finds in the season perfect metaphor for its own narrative and emotional development; the piles of leaves that litter the stage, and which overtake it in the play's final moments, are a potent, elegiatic reminder of the decay at the heart of the play's central relationship, not to mention at the heart of so many relationships, fictional or otherwise."
