About Book

A few friends. People we like. No craziness. The days of a big blow out are over.

Kate is delighted when she finds a house in the country to escape to for New Year's Eve. Gathering together a select group of her closest friends, she is keen to start the coming year afresh. But successful, stressed-out thirtysomethings in search of a good time can make for one very fearsome party . . . and some surprising resolutions.

Michael Wynne's The Priory premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in November 2009.
