Four neighbours plan a party to welcome a refugee family about to arrive. While their urge to open up to the Other is sincere, their methods are not devoid of clumsiness. The play explores the complex issues of social expectations in an age of immigration and the treatment of anyone who deviates in any way from “the norm”.
