ABOUT THE PLAY: Owen meets Lucy, they fall in love, they break up, they rewind and start all over. And over and over and over. A couple, forced to endlessly re-live their romance from beginning to end, wonders if the fate of their relationship is inevitable. They decide to go back and try it all again, this time without the lies or the fear. Could the truth make a difference? Could it release them both from their purgatory?
If you miss it, you can watch it later on WHCi’s YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/c/whctv5. Consider subscribing for future updates.
