directed by Danusia Iwaszko


Tommy (Ian Lavender) and Ada (Ruth Madoc) are in the autumn of their years when they meet on a park bench. As they each confide secrets and recount memories, could this be the start of something special for such an unlikely pair?

This enchanting gem of a one-act play comes direct to the Theatre Royal from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, prior to a UK tour.

Running time: 60 minutesA Black and White headshot of Ian Lavender

Steve Wood’s script is subtle, full of telling detail and turns of phrase – think Alan Bennett or Victoria Wood… two masterful actors bringing a superb script to life.
