The story of two people as their paths cross throughout the years, changing both their lives irrevocably. In a heartbreaking journey of would-be romance, this time-shifting two-hander tracks their meetings in three parts, from the hope of youth at the height of WWII, to the loneliness and hindsight of old age. With his trademark wit, Payne earnestly explores the ideas of love and fate, and ultimately the ties that truly bind us. Starring Valorie Curry and Sam Underwood from The Following, directed by Louisa Proske.
