Todd and Kali are the perfect self-styled couple: They’re beautiful, have a fabulous sex life and live in a designer home. But under the surface is a distrust and desire so potent that even a much-anticipated holiday to Stockholm is threatened. Probing into the psychology of Stockholm Syndrome, Lavery transports us into a lovers’ dance that is at once destructive and euphoric. Stockholm leaves us questioning the fine lines between love and lust, aggressor and victim.


“Lavery’s needle-sharp script toys with the audience like a horror movie…a terrifyingly erotic and haunting 70 minutes.”
-Guardian, UK

“Thrilling exploration of form, Stockholm is provocative and unsettling, leaving you with questions buzzing in your head.”
-Sunday Telegraph, UK
