Rafe and Pete have hit a rut. After seven and a half blissfully happy years, their lack of sexual experience is driving them apart. So when they proposition mutual friend Michael to help out with their problems - knowing full well Michael has his own partner Andrew – what seems like a simple solution quickly spirals out of control.Commissioned by Old Vic New Voices and the TS Eliot estate and first performed in a reading starring Richard Madden and Jeremy Irvine, Four Play is a new comic play about sex and commitment in the 21st century.
