2019 - The Writer

What would you do if you could hit the re-set button on a stale marriage?  Paula and Sam have finally decided to pack it in as a couple. As they divvy up their household goods they wonder what would have happened if they’d never met. Would their dreams and young ambitions have come true? The discovery of a long-forgotten wedding gift sets off a chain of events that transports them back to their college days and the opportunity to rewrite their history together. Reuniting Norm Foster and composer Steve Thomas – co-creators of audience favourites Jasper StationRace Day and Sitting PrettyBeside Myself is a sweet musical examination of love lost and found.
