Rory and Gemma break in to the Mersea Island RNLI station on Halloween in 1987. He wants to run away to London. She wants him to notice that’s she’s not drinking. Over the course of the next thirty-four years the consequences of that night will tear their lives apart.

This haunting new play explores themes of belonging, family ties and forgiveness.
