"Royal Court Prices and no booking fee via Royal Court Theatre": 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.

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. ** "Ingenious and beautiful.
