About the Book

we're still ourselves when we lie

Joan and Tom have been married for nearly thirty years. Tara lies alone while Peter works nights. How far will people go to hear their heart beat again? What does it mean to be unfaithful to those you love?

A stark and searing glimpse into two tangled relationships, the unspoken desires, the piercing regrets, and the postponed conversations.

Owen McCafferty's Unfaithful premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in August 2014.
