Synopsis


After the death of her father, Isabel inherited a vast family estate, Hawksville. For a couple of years, as her father was dying, Isabel became involved with a spiritual group who worship Shaka-Gi, a Guru who they believe to be a living God and an incarnation of Buddha.


She was introduced to the group by her childhood friend Steph who is in a relationship with Ben, the narcissistic teacher and lead disciple of Shaka-Gi.


When her father died she offered to donate Hawksville to Shaka-Gi with the idea that the estate would be restored and reborn as a loving spiritual commune.


However, she has recently got engaged with Charlie who she met at her father's funeral.


She hasn't told Charlie her plans, knowing he would detest the idea.


She's also not sure if she can trust Ben.


Or Charlie for that matter.


Feeling trapped and confused, Isabel asks Ben and Shaka-Gi for more time to consider the deal.


But contracts have already been written and celebrations have already been made.


At five thirty on a Tuesday morning, just as Charlie is about to go to work, Ben and Steph turn up at Hawksville unannounced to find out what happened ...


The play is a dark comedy about trust, inheritance, cults and denial.
