They won’t even know we won this game. Only you and I will know that we Topped Their Love.

Love has no limits for the Diggs siblings: there’s nothing that seventeen-year-old Jude won’t do to keep her younger brother Acton safe. Growing up in the turbulence of 1970s America, Jude works nights and weekends to pay the bills, just so that they can stay together with their mother. But when Acton’s troublesome pals form a club in their basement, a foolish game threatens to upend Jude’s plans and derail their lives forever. Jude will do anything to protect her brother, but someone may have to pay the price.

As trust and loyalty are put on the line, hindsight proves devastating in Naomi Wallace’s riveting drama.

The Breach opened at Hampstead Theatre, London, in May 2022.
