The mayfly hatches in the morning, mates in the afternoon, dies at night: a lot can happen in a day.

A family searches for new beginnings:
Ben thinks they might be better off without him, but his wife Cat has read her stars: ‘Today a very special person will appear from out the blue’.

Their daughter Loops is getting ready for a date. It’s her first one, and she has everything crossed.

New play exploring rebirth in the aftermath of tragedy.

“Astonishingly assured debut... a warm, wise, sad, enthralling evening.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“The cast of four is collectively very strong and all performances are sensitive and believable.”

Aliya Al-Hassan (Broadway World)

“Heartbreakingly funny... A tender and wise play suffused with grief and absence that scratches at the fragility of our existence”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Yet another triumph [for the Orange Tree]... A delicate and tender examination of rural isolation and familial grief. ”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“White has a great ear for the sharp and sometimes spiteful... Shamji’s bewildered Harry is both touching and hilarious.”

Tom Wicker (Time Out, The Stage, Telegraph)

“Promising new writing based on a family grappling with rural poverty and loss.”

Rosemary Waugh (The Stage)
