Our Share of Tomorrow

Our Share of Tomorrow

“Unique and awe-inspiring. A heart-breaking theatrical gem, which will deeply move those fortunate enough to witness it.” ThreeWeeks

Real Circumstance’s 5 star play ran at Theatre503 and toured the East of England in 2013, and ran at York Theatre Royal and the Edinburgh Fringe in 2010.

Tom asked Grace out when they were sitting on the Quay. She was fifteen, he a year older, and they were very happy together. But then she had to go away – something to do with her parents. So he sat on the Quay waiting for her. And one day she came back.

Our Share of Tomorrow is a love story.
