The Distance (2014)

A NEW PLAY BY DEBORAH BRUCE
8 October 2014 — 8 November 2014

I am asking you both, as my oldest, closest friends, to accept the decision I have made. And I am sorry if it’s difficult to accept. I can assure you, it has been difficult to make.

Good friends should be there for one another – no matter what. But when Bea returns home after five years abroad having made a bold choice about her life, old friends struggle to support her. Or even to understand. One night in Brighton, things threaten to slide into chaos...

A sharply funny play about motherhood (and fatherhood); about keeping control and letting go.

Relationships are hard: long-term ones harder still. What does it take to really go the distance?
