Summary

Two people, two cultures and two outlooks equal one unlikely love affair told at the breakneck speed of city life. A recovering alcoholic, she is a petite Scottish artist who likes to look at the stars. He is an Anglo Chinese stockbroker all flash suits, fancy cars, fast dogs and endless bottles of champagne. This razor sharp portrait of their doomed affair, set in London, Corfu and New York, garnered rave reviews at the King's Head Theatre, BAC and 59E59 Theaters New York, twice appearing on the Time Out Critics’ Choice List.

Media

"Matthew Wilkinson’s vivid and expertly done play… Mr. Wilkinson captures so many quirks of feeling and speech."
The New York Times

 

Slick, solid and blindly up to date...Wilkinson's writing is sharp but fluid...includes some hilarious mobile phone riffs and a tour de force down the dogs… brilliant.”
Time Out Critics’ Choice

 

“This is theatre for the adrenalin culture, a pumping, throbbing, finger snapping portrait… here the culture clash is as much about art and the city as it is about elusive notions of national identity.”
London Evening Standard

 

"Effortlessly enjoyable."
The Guardian

 

"A tough, Mamet style two hander, brilliantly played."
What's On
