Four children, living alone with their mother, decide not to inform the authorities when she dies. Instead they take her down into the cellar and bury her in cement and for the next days, weeks and months live far away from normal conventions.

Book Description:

David Aula and Jimmy Osborne's stage adaptation of Ian McEwan's 1978 novel explores coming-of-age, burgeoning sexuality and the distortions of a fourteen-year-old mind.

From the Back Cover:

"A shocking book, morbid, full of repellant imagery - and irresistibly readable...The effect achieved by McEwan's quiet, precise and sensuous touch is that of magic realism - a transfiguration of the ordinary that has far stronger retinal and visceral impact than the flabby surrealism of so many experimental novels."- New York Review of Books


"His writing is exact, tender, funny, voluptuous, disturbing." - The Times


"The Maestro." - New Statesman


"McEwan has--a style and a vision of life of his own...No one interested in the state and mood of contemporary Britain can afford not to read him." - John Fowles


"A sparkling and adventurous writer." - Dennis Potter
