Gnawing away at Maddy is the possibility — just the possibility — that her toddler, Joshua, has been abused by a stranger. Such is her protective instinct that she now perceives everyone as a potential danger to her child. Maddy's neurotic mistrust of the world leads her to a dark place.
Gut is a taut psychological thriller that asks who can be trusted with our children, and it is more dangerous not to trust at all? The play is a vision of contemporary society where hyper-vigilance has replaced a sense of community and helpfulness.
