Supported by Wicklow County Arts Office, Dublin City Arts Office, Fishamble New Play Clinic, Mermaid Arts Centre and The New Theatre.

In a Dublin office a few days before Christmas, entrepreneur Hope Whyte is Restored to life. Will she honour the terms of a blood-chilling contract signed in the next world, or defy her mentor Larry McGrath and endure...a fate worse than death?
