'Rule number eleven: We don’t talk about them. Not here. They don’t exist here.'


Nadia and Daniel have a secret. In fact they have quite a few. They’ve just signed on the dotted line for a studio flat. Under a pseudonym, naturally – Mr and Mrs White. After years of school pick-ups, TV takeaways, and the day to day drudgery of married life, this is their chance to wipe the slate clean. But as much as they try and redefine the rules, and themselves, the outside world is closing in.

Ultra-contemporary, sexy and funny, Rust pushes the boundaries of trust, love and lust to the limit.

Critic reviews

The script is gorgeously written; the dialogue is witty and the humour is sharp


Kenny Emson’s rule-bound new play exploring the dynamics of an affair


New writing about modern relationships falls disappointingly flat despite an interesting premise

The Stage

When reality bites

The Times

Although 'Rust' tells its story with flair and fullness, I was left feeling I wanted some more

The Arts desk

Rust honestly attempts to help audiences define what love means today

Broadway World

Admirably precise but promises more than it delivers

Evening Standard

Stylish, well-acted and slightly humdrum drama following a couple’s affair over several years
