From the team who presented Trajectory ("Quality New Writing") and Fresh Start ("Very Perceptive) - Corale are proud to produce this world premier of Arabella Arnott's new play as the first full production at Alphabetti's new venue.
Beth and John are happily married. But they’re not always happy. There are lots of things they need to talk about.
A chance encounter with a young single mum, Izzie, reminds Beth of her past, and conversations with an enigmatic young stranger, Jack, bring her thoughts and fears into focus.
“I wonder what he’d be doing now. What sort of person he’d be. What sort of person I’d be?”
As Beth comes to find comfort in her ongoing chats with the two youngsters, she discovers that Jack may not be a stranger, and that he seems to hold the key to a lot of the answers she has been looking for – or hiding from.
With Rosie Stancliffe, Christopher Price and introducing Skyla Pearce and Benjamin Michael Smith. Directed by Matt Jamie. SUPPORTED BY ARTS COUNCIL ENGLAND.
