A new poem-turned play about love and fate –

How two strangers can become lovers and how relationships grow and fade endlessly.

Heavily influenced by The Ruba’iyat of Omar Khayyam, this original play is an exploration of two people’s love for one another and how fate might play its part. Love grows and fades, nearly always involves two strangers and, like life itself, is almost entirely unexplained. Fate, here, is personified. Fate is someone we all know.


Performed at The Hope Theatre, London.
