Caroline's back. She may not have all the parts she started with, but she's just had a dust-up with cancer, so that's to be expected. Returning to her home in Sunset Strip, a prime holiday locale for countless summers now, Caroline finds things slightly worse than she left them. The lake has dried up, as have the vacationers.

Suzie Miller's latest work is set where all the best family narratives unfold – on the knife edge between farce and disaster. Promising love, family dysfunction and the secret to training a goldfish, Sunset Strip is a potent reminder of why we choose not to throttle those related to us by blood. Because we need other inmates to help us run the asylum, generally.
