Sephy opens the play with this monologue. She is at the beach,
START: My family’s private beach. This was my favourite place in the whole world. Kilometres of coastline that was all ours, with just a couple of signs saying ‘Private Property’ and some rickety old wooden fencing at each end, through which Callum and I had made a gap.
END: That was three years ago now. And we’d meet here every day for ever. No one could stop us
