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.

Following its sell-out run in 2014, Deborah Bruce’s hit play returns.

An Orange Tree Theatre and Sheffield Theatres co-production, which also played at Sheffield Crucible Studio 29 Oct - 14 Nov 2015.

Running time 2 hours (including an interval)
