“People will believe the most fabulous tale you can tell. It’s the one they secretly long for. It must be unprovable, impossible, fantastical.”
Two young women arrive in a nameless British town. Their names are not their own. They have come from some trouble somewhere. They don’t declare their ages. Are they sisters, or are they mother and daughter? This dazzling play shifts from today to 1822, and then to both periods at once as fantasy reveals truths that we all recognise.
