A flat in Ladbroke Grove, West London. 1952. When Hester Collyer is found by her neighbours in the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt, the story of her tempestuous affair with a former RAF pilot and the breakdown of her marriage to a High Court judge begins to emerge. With it comes a portrait of need, loneliness and long-repressed passion. Behind the fragile veneer burns a brutal sense of loss and desire in Terence Rattigan’s devastating masterpiece.

It’s modern day New York and Bobbie is turning 35. Surrounded by best friends, who are all “happily married” or soon to be; this is a time to contemplate the future. This hilarious musical comedy provides a sneaky peak into other people’s marriages, the pros and cons of relationships and commitment and asks us to consider what life is really about, without love.
