“…this tragicomic and very touching three-hander by
the new writer Tabitha Mortiboy is a little gem.”
★ ★ ★ ★ The Times

This is a play which looks at loneliness and aloneness, experienced in different ways by its three characters. It is set on Beachy Head at the end of the Summer and beginning of Autumn. Julie owns an ice cream van, Bernard was homeless and now keeps Julie company, and young Skye struggles to understand why her father left her. The characters are complex but not complicated and will reward any actor with their warmth and sincerity PLUS there are some absolute crackers of speeches! It is a lovely play, sad at times, but with the thread of hope never far away. I look forward to hearing from you all.
