Amid the sun, sea, sex and sangria of the Mediterranean, Andy and Tom find themselves torn between sexual promise and commitments back home. Or rather, Tom is torn, finding himself drawn to the self-deprecating Trish, but having to dash off all the time to phone his wife Gail. Andy is less troubled by pangs of conscience, and Trish’s friend Karen is a willing accomplice – though Andy might have to fight off the attentions of his lusty young rivals, Scott and Ray, if he is to consider his holiday to be a success.

Everyone on the package holiday to Benidorm seems to be looking for love – or something quicker – but home keeps getting in the way. Passion Killers is a scorching comedy about love and lust, holiday romance and getting thrown in the deep end of the pool.

Passion Killers was first performed in 1994 at the Hull Truck Theatre.
