Raya

Deborah Bruce’s witty and tender new play

Overview

It’s been years since former flames Alex and Jason last saw each other. With those carefree university days long behind them, the student reunion seems the perfect opportunity to reconnect, revive and relive their heyday.

In Deborah Bruce’s witty and tender new play Alex and Jason flirt with turning back time - even if it’s just for one night. But will the last 30 years get in the way?

Deborah returns to Hampstead Downstairs following Godchild. Other credits include The House They Grew Up In (Chichester / Headlong) and The Distance (Orange Tree).

Hampstead’s Artistic Director Roxana Silbert directs her first Downstairs production, following the critically acclaimed The Haystack on the Main Stage.

Starring Claire Price (Rebus, Home Fires), Bo Poraj (Miranda, Gloria) and Shannon Hayes (Cold Feet, Years and Years).
