"I bit into your heart and I chewed on it slowly like a connoisseur. I swallowed it. I remember thinking it was an especially small heart and easy to digest. But no matter what I did you wouldn't die" 

It is day one of the newly formed Truth and Reconciliation Commission for Northern Ireland at Stormont. 

As Sandra prepares to take her seat on the Commission, her long-lost sister, Teeni, explodes into the chamber and attacks the chairwoman. Is this part of a terrorist plot or just her sister's way of announcing her return to Belfast? 

In this fast paced, two woman showdown, Sandra and Teeni must fight through decades of violence, anger and denial. 

Written by David Ireland and being performed for the first time in New Zealand, Everything Between Us is a dramatic, dark and unflinching comedy; posing the question, is reconciliation possible on the pathway to peace?
