Sam loves Anna, football and gambling. But when the spark disappears, how much is he prepared to risk in the chase to recapture the thrill?

With sharp humour Charlton’s moving new play delves in to the pressures of modern relationships in a disconnected world.


Directed by Ria Parry
Performed by Claire Dargo and Neil Grainger
