A normal morning, a normal family. There’s nothing special about this day. Then the phones start to go off – something’s happened. ‘Get home quick.’ The family is caught in a nightmare, searching through the day’s details in the hope of finding a sign, a warning. But the thing about fate is that it doesn’t announce itself. Some things in life are just random.

In this astonishing solo performance, Zahra Newman switches from role to role to play a family, a street, a community. This is a beautiful, riveting play of chance, loss and hope.
