Anthony Fagan and Gabrielle Nellis Pain Lately

Proforca Theatre Company presents Lately by James Lewis, directed by David Brady, which makes its debut at the Lion & Unicorn Theatre in Spring 2020, a story about the dreams we never realise, the places we can never leave and the people that bring us back down to earth again.

Cal & Alf. Callum & Alison. They were supposed to be part of each other’s lives forever, if only the universe had let it happen the way it should.

But whoever they were before, they’re different people now. The universe that sent them spinning into free-fall throws them together again when the boy who ran away becomes the man that returns to face the music.

And the question that the universe needs to answer most of all now is -Just whatever did happen to Callum Miles?
