A few friends. People we like. No craziness. The days of a big blow out are over. Kate is delighted when she finds a house in the country to escape to for New Year's Eve. Gathering together a select group of her closest friends, she is keen to start the coming year afresh. But successful, stressed-out thirty somethings in search of a good time can make for one very fearsome party ...and some surprising resolutions. Michael Wynne's "The Priory" was premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in November 2009.
