“He calls me sometimes. Usually in the dark hours of the morning. ‘Mummy’ he cries. ‘Where are you? Come and find me.’”
After years apart, two families come together to rediscover their lost friendship. Instead, they conjure up the spirit of a buried tragedy.
Set against the economic crisis of the 1930s, this boldly theatrical tale of grief and denial by Alexi Kaye Campbell (The Pride, Apologia, The Faith Machine) is vividly brought to life by Shared Experience (Mary Shelley, Brontë) and the Tricycle Theatre, directed by Polly Teale.
Cast includes Antony Byrne, Daniel Flynn, Natalie Gavin, Helen Schlesinger, Simon Shepherd, Joseph Simms and Sarah Woodward.
Creatives include Tom Piper (Designer), Oliver Fenwick (Lighting Designer) and John Nicholls (Sound Designer and Composer).
