“You took relationships as if they were the next train.”

Alex and Colin’s stories flow like mist down the Thames, roll under Hammersmith Bridge, and slip past the windows of forgotten Soho restaurants. As the old men’s youth comes to life, so do the young men they once loved.


Peter Gill co-directs the world premiere of this captivating and romantic portrait of London with the acclaimed Alice Hamilton. Gill’s plays include The York RealistCertain Young MenVersaillesCardiff East, and Small Change. Alex and Colin are played by Ian Gelder (Game of Thrones) and Christopher Godwin (The Dig), leading a superb cast.
