Old Love

Images by Jamie Breen (Very Serious)


From Chris Isaacs, writer of Flood and co-writer of FAG/STAG comes a new work about new love.

Rob’s pretty smitten with Florence, and it’s easy to know why.

She’s full of kindness and honesty, looks at him when he speaks, holds herself well in different crowds, dresses beautifully, can speak four languages, is well-read and well-travelled, cares for her friends, helps the disadvantaged, and even knows the difference between ‘there’, ‘their’ and ‘they’re’.  She sings and dances and lives and loves and never through any of it loses herself.  She is close to being the perfect woman…

And she’s twice Rob’s age.
