Written with Eldridge's trademark lyricism of everyday family life and interaction, The Knot of the Heart is a play where emotions are high and relationships are sensitively written. Beautiful and privileged, Lucy is enjoying a burgeoning career in television. But her social drug habit has become a serious addiction, casting a dark shadow over her future happiness. As her charmed life begins to slip away, Lucy comes to realise that the devoted support of her family does not come without a price.

The Knot of the Heart is atmospheric and poetic without undermining the characters' realism. The play was first performed in 2011 at the Almeida Theatre, London.
