We need the theatre, couldn’t, couldn’t do without it. Could we?

A young woman is desperate for fame and a way out. A young man is pining after the woman of his dreams. A successful writer longs for a sense of achievement. An actress wants to fight the changing of the times. In an isolated home in the countryside where dreams are in tatters, hopes dashed, hearts broken and there is nowhere left to turn, the only option is to turn on each other.
Produced by Ambassador Theatre Group Productions, Benjamin Lowy Productions, Glass Half Full Productions and Gavin Kalin Productions
