Leah's got writer's block, Amber's got ambition, Jake's got it all. Leah and Jake were once up-and-coming, hot-shot poets. Now Leah's working admin as Jake's career skyrockets, and slugs are eating the foundation of their house. When fresh-faced Amber shows up, it's only a matter of time before things get sticky. A play about threesomes, poetry and the failure to communicate.
