" L -   I’ve seen us in a new light now. I see the cracks in the paint, the imperfect strokes. I’d give anything to go back to before. We looked perfect before. 

F  -  No one was looking before."

A desperate couple sign up for an unusual form of therapy to finally understand what’s gone wrong in their relationship, but this quickly becomes more than they signed up for.

Stalemate is a sci-fi dark comedy about love and relationships in a technological age.


The first two scenes of Stalemate were staged at Emerge , Flux Theatre's new writing night that connects developing writers and directors as well as providing mentoring from industry professionals. Stalemate was directed by Hannah de Ville and was mentored by Josh McTaggart and Lynette Linton.

Stalemate was also recently adapted into a short film.
