Newbury, 1997. Sal is attempting to cook
dinner for the family. She and husband David have pulled off a coup and

youngest Tom will hopefully make it out of detention in time for dinner.

Jack Thorne's play the end of history… premiered in the
Jerwood Theatre Downstairs at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in June
2019, in a production directed by John Tiffany.
