Two Cigarettes In The Dark
Isabel is bright, witty and fiercely independent, with a straight-talking style which keeps everyone who tries to love her at a safe distance – even as she prepares to say goodbye. In a series of encounters with her oldest friend and her two sons, by turns funny, startling and poignant, home truths are exchanged and her past begins to emerge.
As Bing Crosby’s bittersweet melody waltzes Isabel into a place where she must finally confront hidden regrets and family secrets, can this proud mother, wife and friend finally find peace?
Stephen Wyatt’s wistful new comedy reunites long-time collaborators Penelope Keith with director Alan Strachan and designer Simon Higlett.
