Touring nationally Autumn 2019

Playing at The Theatre

One of the great intimate plays of passionate ideas and complex love.

In a cold London flat during the depths of Winter, Kyra and newly widowed Tom reconnect years after the end of a passionate affair. Was it their polar opposite approach to life that drove them apart, or was it Tom ‘accidently’ letting his wife find out? What has kept them apart all these years, and might they still love each other? Over the course of a single night, a series of unexpected visitors, and a combination of sadness, anger and laughter, will Kyra find the answers?
