Following critically acclaimed, sold-out runs in the West End and on Broadway, the Royal Court Theatre presents the first UK tour of Nick Payne’s explosive new play about free will and friendship.
Starring Louise Brealey (Sherlock) and Joe Armstrong (Happy Valley, Hollow Crown, The Village, Robin Hood) the boundless potential of a connection between two people leads us through a heart-breaking love story of endless invention.
Since winning the George Devine Award in 2009, Nick Payne (Art of Dying, Wanderlust) has grown to be one of the UK’s foremost playwrights. This new play presented by the Royal Court Theatre and directed by the award-winning Michael Longhurst (If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet, Remembrance Day) is a beautiful portrayal of one relationship and infinite possibilities.

His credits include One Day When We Were Young for Paines Plough at Sheffield Theatres and If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet at the Bush Theatre. He was the winner of the George Devine Award in 2009.
