To mark World Service’s 75th anniversary, renowned playwright Sir Arnold Wesker has written a brand new play. Two women and a teenager meet by chance on a bus and develop an unlikely friendship. Their curiosity is aroused by a rocking horse in the window of a house. Inside the house, an elderly couple are coping with the loss of their only son. The father can’t stop grieving while his wife tries to ease his pain. Slowly, these two stories weave together as the characters seek a way towards a more fulfilled future.
