In a farmhouse at the edge of Salisbury Plain, a family is falling apart. Stephen can’t afford to put his mother into care; Arthur can’t afford to stop working and look after his wife. When a young stranger with blue hair moves in to care for Edie as her mind unravels, the family are forced to ask: are we living the way we wanted?
“An absolute beauty, by turns funny, tender and desperately sad.” The Telegraph
A beautiful and sharply funny love story, Visitors takes a haunting look at the way our lives slip past us. Direct from a national tour and a sell-out run at the Arcola Theatre, the cast includes two Bush Theatre alumni: the award-winning Linda Bassett (East is East, Calendar Girls, Grandma’s House) and celebrated actor Robin Soans (Hamlet, As You Like It, RSC; The Contingency Plan, Bush Theatre; The Queen, Granada Film).
Nominated for the Evening Standard’s Charles Wintour Award for Most Promising Playwright.
Presented by Up in Arms in association with the Bush Theatre.
