About Book

Played this game. Inside, with the other girls. The 'he is going to meet you' game. The 'he is going to meet you with flowers' game. The 'he is going to turn up in a limo' game. The 'he is going to bring champagne' game. The 'he is going to cover you in kisses, or cum, or love bites or bloody Belgian chocolate' game, doesn't matter but when you walk out of those gates. He is going to be there, that is the game.

Chase is waiting to be released from prison. And Nightingale is there to meet her. Everything is under control and they're both going to get it right. This time.

Nightingale and Chase premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in September 2001.
