In 1809, Thomasina Coverly, the daughter of the house, is a precocious teenager with ideas about mathematics, nature and physics well ahead of her time. She studies with her tutor Septimus Hodge, a friend of Lord Byron (an unseen guest in the house). In the present, writer Hannah Jarvis and literature professor Bernard Nightingale converge on the house: she is investigating a hermit who once lived on the grounds; he is researching a mysterious chapter in the life of Byron. As their studies unfold - with the help of Valentine Coverly, a post-graduate student in mathematical biology - the truth about what happened in Thomasina's time is gradually revealed.

Frank McGuinness's play is a dramatisation of the true story of Westerners held hostage in Lebanon in the late 1980s. An American doctor, an Irish journalist and a British academic are taken hostage and held by unseen captors in the Middle East. With no one else to turn to, the need to stay alive and sane overcomes their initial divisions and prejudices. NOTE: May contain coarse language.
