    At a dinner party in the posh London suburb of Greenwich, Miles Garth suddenly leaves the table midway through the meal, locks himself in an upstairs room, and refuses to leave. Neighbors and friends slowly gathers around the house, and the story of Miles is one told from the points of view of four of them: a woman in her 40s called Anna, a man in his 60s called Mark, a woman in her 80s called May, and a 10-year-old child called Brooke. The thing is... none of these people knows Miles anything more than glancingly.

    Robert says: "Insufferable as a bad house guest"
    "Disappointed"

    What would have made There but for the better?

    A different narrator might have helped. The voice grated on my nerves.


    What was most disappointing about Ali Smith’s story?

    Disjointed and boring. Maybe reading it instead of listening would have given me an appreciation for it. I couldn't even make it through the last 2 hours.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Some inflection!
