“All over the world there are these invisible threads stretching between lovers and husbands and wives and couples, that if you could see them, you’d get caught up in them, you’d suffocate”

It’s been 5 years. Vic’s moved on. Charlie’s a medical mystery. And nothing’s making sense. Held together by their past, torn apart by their present and unsure if there even is a future. Their explosive encounter makes them question everything they know and ask why they can’t break free of the threads that bind them together. David Lane’s thrilling two-hander explores love, loss and what happens when life goes on, but you can’t.

David Lane is an award-nominated British playwright and published dramaturg. He has written numerous plays for young companies, adults and professional touring including work for Half Moon, Proteus, Kilter Theatre, Travelling Light,Theatre Royal Plymouth, Chichester Festival Theatre, British School of Beijing,Salisbury Playhouse, Cheltenham Everyman and the egg. Lane’s work has previously been described as ‘powerful, chilling and politically engaged’, as well as ‘vivid, disturbing and utterly fascinating’ – ★★★★ The Times.
