Based on a true story from the 1960’s spy revelations and associated hysteria, the play takes place in a suburb of London and centres around a nice middle-aged English couple, Bob and Barbara Jackson and their teenage daughter, Julie. The Jacksons have their lives disrupted when they are asked to help ‘the authorities’ by using their house as an observation post to make a surveillance of the neighbourhood. The Jacksons feel the tension as their privacy is invaded and they are asked to betray their neighbours.
