There's always a man.
Going off to war, in a ship.
In a uniform.
And there's a woman, often called Nancy.
Nancy is on the dock, looking nice, waving a handkerchief.
And she says, hang on, can't I just come with you?
Rachel wants to write about folk songs and war and women, especially their urge to escape.
Will and Dan are mountain climbers, adventurers, conquering peak after peak.
A tale about love, adventure and betrayal. But how are stories told, and whose version is remembered?
Award-winning playwright Elinor Cook returns to the Orange Tree, following her critically acclaimed play Out of Love in 2018.
