Sometimes the greatest journey is the distance between two people. Up until now Monique has always been able to give her clients exactly what they've wanted. Thomas has always been exactly what everyone else has expected. But tonight Thomas' curiosity is going to get the better of him while demanding of Monique the one thing she's reluctant to offer. Throughout the course of the evening the tension, emotional and sexual, builds as the two characters miss each other on the surface, whilst underneath it all, they connect in a way neither had expected or hoped for. In a society where true honesty is a rare commodity, Monique and Thomas take the audience on a funny, poignant and brutal journey of self-examination. Written by
