After 16 days of no sleep, anxiety, physical discomfort and mental torture Tabitha finds her carefully constructed reputation shattered on the waiting room floor among a pile of Easter Eggs and traumatised patients. Cavity is a hilarious exploration of life's sweetest temptation that'll leave you questioning how far you'd go for chocolate.
