“Just let go. Let your body float. You’ll still be here but it’ll feel like flying in a dream.”

Bo is busy - balancing the pressures of work and the needs of her struggling daughter. When her mother, the irrepressible force-of-nature Beth, is admitted to hospital following a stroke, the practical realities of the present collide with the complexities of their past.

Celia Imrie and Tamsin Greig play mother and daughter in this kaleidoscopic and compassionate new play, written and directed by Anna Mackmin.


With special thanks to our Season Supporter, Charles Holloway OBE
