‘...one of the most breathtakingly fine productions before the British public today.’Financial Times
A honeymoon suite in Bridlington. Eddie and Irene begin married life with great excitement, but the future may have other ideas…

If Romeo and Juliet had lived, would their marriage have survived? How long? Ten years? Twenty? Fifty?
