Synopsis

The latest play from the author of Murdered to Death, Out of Focus and Seeds of Doubt is set on a cliff top in the Isle of Wight, both in 1969 and the present day. Having met Anne in 1969 during the week of the Summer of Love music festival, Paul decides to shed his conservative life on the island, rejecting his parents and fiancee to run off with Anne to her commune on the mainland. A heart attack by his father Albert forces him to reconsider, and despite promises of joining Anne later, it’s apparent he will stay. In the present day, a chance encounter with Anne who is visiting the island with her own daughter, leads Paul back into his past and the flames of romance slowly rekindle ¾ but not without seemingly insurmountable obstacles in their path, not least of which is the growing attachment between Paul’s son Al and Anne’s daughter Julie. The parallels between Paul’s past relationship with his father and his current relationship with his own son become apparent, as each generation grapples with similar problems and difficulties to the one before in this poignant and humorous look at how the events of one week in 1969 affect three generations of the same family.
