Ten years after the end of their affair in New York, two lovers meet in a hotel room far from their homes. Both are now married, both have children and both have been wondering about the road not taken. What begins as a casual meal and an evening of catching up turns into a painful, hilarious, passionate and moving voyage towards a moment that could change both their lives forever.

Or is my real soul mate still out there, living another life? - in a fresh, lively and original way. The piece premiered in London's West End featuring Gillian Anderson and Roger Allam.
