A heart-wrenching, inventive new stage version of the timeless love story.

Your heart dances. The world seems strange and new. You want to laugh and skip and fall forever… you are in love. You are in love with the wrong person.


Laura, the respectable suburban wife, and Alec, the idealistic, married doctor, meet in a station buffet, fall passionately in love but are doomed never to find fulfilment.


“A first-class return to romance” – Charles Spencer, Telegraph


“A delicate, whimsical creation. Exquisite” – Ben Brantley, New York Times


An Angles RATz production that could bring a tear to your eye!!
