Perspective slips and distorts when the person you love dies too young and too suddenly. The future, which stretched so invitingly before you, is shattered and the past, even the most mundane of pasts, achieves great significance in retrospect. How can Nancy, at the best of times âa difficult womanâ keep her emotional balance when Eddie, the love of her life, dies just days before their wedding? And how can she keep his memory alive, and protect it from those who remember him with less affection but perhaps more honesty? Is he destined to become a sainted remote figure, preserved in everyoneâs anxiety to speak only good of the dead? Or will he, amazingly and shockingly, walk back into her life in all his fleshy fallibility? And will Nancy ever come to terms with the difference between her perfect dead lover, and the all too imperfect living one? Contains strong language World PremierePerformers Kathryn Hunt, Steve Blakeley, Thomas Craig, Gillian Axtell, Sophie Louise Dann.
