Jonah leaves the religious commune he has grown up in, in a small rural community to head to London with a red suitcase and a need to start living his life. Sophie just wants to be seen by someone, so she doesn’t fade away. Little do either of them know what will happen when Jonah moves in to the flat downstairs.

This funny, honest, voyeuristic love story is an account of two peoples struggles to find purpose and navigate their emotions. It will leave you wondering what should love really look like, and can it be whatever you feel it to be?

DIRECTORS’ CUTS SEASON 2020

The Directors’ Cuts season is a programme of contemporary theatre presented by the four graduating directors from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and featuring work by acting, design and production students. Now in its fourteenth year and at The Wardrobe Theatre for the fourth time, the Directors’ Cuts season is firmly established in the Bristol theatre calendar. It has a reputation for showcasing fresh, vibrant and cutting edge theatre work by some of the finest emerging talent in UK theatre. Diverse and highly charged, this is a season of provocative plays which all have an important relevance in today’s society.

“Contemporary drama with extraordinary insightfulness, vivacity and theatrical prowess.”
Jenny Stephens, Artistic Director, Bristol Old Vic Theatre School
