First produced by Widsith at RADA, London (2006)


"Don't you know how rare this is? For two people who love each other to find each other. Not just drift past in the darkness. It's a miracle."

Trapped in a city under siege, Talya is waiting for the man she loves. Raneen thinks Talya is wasting her time.

But when the man turns up, against all the odds, the sisters' fragile relationship is put to the test.

A play about love in a warzone and love as a warzone.

'bleak, dark and depressing - and utterly riveting'  Martin Lennon, Edinburgh Evening News

'Grochala never tells us where we are but, for 70 intense minutes, we are there entirely'  Fiona Mountford, The Evening Standard
