I remember the crunch of the gravel under my feet, and thinking my life might be over. I might have had all of my fun. And then him. And we don’t get to choose who we fall for.

Eddie and Carol were lovers once, but their lives went in different directions. Now they meet again on a park bench in a town full of memories, and find something still burns between them.

On the country’s southern margin where the towns give way to the English Channel, both search for the centre of their lives. Will they find a way to let go of the past for the sake of their futures?

“Small in scale but huge in heart... extremely touching and relatable... A play of little moments with big impact.”

Time Out (Other reviewers)

“Low-key but quietly moving... Norris is excellent at catching the cadences of everyday conversation... Delicately directed.”

Holly Williams (What's On Stage, Time Out, Independent)

“A Chekhovian comic sadness... French keeps us guessing in a subtle, likable performance... Constructed with craft and grace.”

Lyn Gardner (The Guardian)

“Subtle, tender and achingly sad... The scenes between Peake-Jones and French are delicately drawn, awkward and fond.”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Not Norris at his finest... Too little about their relationship either then or now rings true.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)
