LIFE AND LOVE IN THE MODERN WORLD

The most divisive issues of our generation are tackled head on in Ryan Craig’s timely new play. 

Meet Lotty and Teddy. Two dreamers – colleagues, lovers and then man and wife -  determined to make a difference in their worlds, and to keep the spark in their relationship and their family alive. But can they do this as academics on a university campus where every well-intentioned thought, each well-meaning gesture and idealistic good deed can have unexpected and long-lasting consequences?
 
Ryan Craig’s timely new play follows Lotty and Teddy on a decade long romance, picking their way through the professional minefield of cancel culture, gender politics and power struggles that is their very modern workplace and even more modern relationship.
