One Flea Spare is Naomi Wallace's searing and lyrical exploration of the politics of compassion in the year of the plague. On the last day of their quarantine, a wealthy couple's house is invaded by two strangers - a sailor and a girl who might not be what she seems - and so they must begin another month of quarantine...together. Watched over by their jailer, these four with nothing in common must find a way to survive both the plague and each other. Alliances and betrayals, bargains and games.

Presented in the intimacy of the Factory Theatre, One Flea Spare provides a darkly poetic look at a world where the Plague has leveled class distinctions and left the survivors free to invent their own rules and codes.
