About two people in love
Very normal and boring stuff.
Yet. Only paper and pen can be trusted. Money is no use, you have to pay attention here.
And what does it matter where you come from and where you live - as with this super fast train you can get within 10 minutes from London to Prague?

Improvisation shall be used.
Text is not so important, the set of rules need to be followed.
Structure is simple:
ACT 1 both do not look outside.
ACT 2 only Steve looks outside.
ACT 3 both look outside.
And it is looped.
This project is meant to have open workshops, open rehearsals and be on festivals. It will never set and never go in production in a theatre hall with audience. It is meant to continue in a forever progress, ever evolving. Always NEW and always BEGINNING.
They stand so proudly year on year
The ancient maker’s honoured work
Cherished, maintained and held upright
Its heritage, set in stone and with its views
Looking at and looking out
The famous buildings, palaces.
The newest shops and cafes.
May deserve new elan.

Build with Bricks, People and Attention.
