You know I'm in pain, you know you can help relieve it, still you actively withhold, you withhold in case it compromises your moral compass?

Two strangers meet in a hotel bar for the first time under false pretences. Flattery, adulation and mutual admiration allows their friendship to kindle as the night progresses.

As these disparate and opposing characters joust and jostle for the upper-hand, tensions build and the power dynamic continually shifts, resulting in history coming to the forefront and unknown feelings rising to the surface, with surprising consequences.

Leopards is Alys Metcalf's debut play and is published to coincide with the world premiere at Rose Theatre, Kingston, in September 2021.
Alys Metcalf is a Welsh writer. She recently wrote the comedy Beginner's Guide to Line of Duty, voiced by Diane Morgan for BBC platforms.
