“I’m sure you’ll joke this is not the first one way conversation we’ve ever had…”

Every Thursday, Judy tries to talk to her daughter online. Judy calls from Islington; her daughter is in Palestine.

It’s 2010 and retired lawyer Judy is stuck at home, casting around for ways to occupy herself: with a women’s peace league; with local politics; with her daughter’s life.

Donmar Warehouse Artistic Director Michael Longhurst directs Diana Quick in this smart one-woman play specially written for her by Adam Brace and featuring music by composer Isobel Waller-Bridge.

Recorded via webcam in Diana Quick’s home during the Coronavirus lockdown in April 2020, Midnight Your Time is a wryly comic and ultimately heartbreaking exploration of what it really means to communicate remotely.

Midnight Your Time premiered on the Donmar Warehouse YouTube Channel at 7.30pm on 13 May 2020.
