Borrowed Time

5th – 9th October (Tuesday – Saturday 7.30pm, Saturday matinee 3pm) £12

When Darren and Kathleen meet as grieving strangers on the tube, Darren finds that by giving her purpose to live, he manages to silence his own demons- but for how long? Playful, thought-provoking and compelling, Garth Oates’ new play uses physicality and delicate naturalistic scenes, to explore moments of grief and struggle, contrasted by laughter, witty silliness and fantastic one-liners. This exploration of a blossoming friendship shows us the power that connection can have on a person plagued by loneliness and feeling insignificant in modern London. Darren supports Kathleen through a year of heartbreak and stress, but do all guardian angels leave when their duty is done?
