Production à la création:

A four-handed series of monologues and songs about love, regret and confusion

Tell the story of four people who live their lives in the shadow of the elusive Livi - a woman whose life is everything hundreds would dream of. But hundreds of people aren't her. She is attractive, popular and admired. and life as she knows it is about to take an unexpected - and uninvited - turn.

Harry (Joseph Davenport) has been recalled from university in America to console his mother about his father. From his bedroom window, he sees Livi catch her bus every day, gets a crush on her, finally meets her. Waitress Saffy (Sejal Keshwala)'s job leaves no time to meet men for romance. She meets Livi at South American dance classes - is it love? Friendless Louise (Laura Jane Matthewson) works in a flower shop, goes alone to opera to escape her dull reality. Livi's her friend from childhood but just uses her - is it really a friendship? Dylan (Christopher Wheeler)'s gone out with Livi for years. Increasingly she's avoiding him - the end of love?

This is a four-handed series of monologues and songs about love, regret and confusion. The characters do not meet each other, and are linked only through their love for an offstage woman called Livvi, who never appears. Following the death of his unloved father, Harry is forced to quit university to be with his mother, though he spends his time ogling a pretty girl in the bus queue outside his window; Louise has a dark history she’d love to share with her best friend; Saffy is lonely until she starts attending dance classes and learns more than how to tango; and dreary Dylan, smoking and drinking too much because his girlfriend seems to have gone off him.

The music and lyrics were by 18 year old Oliver Fenwick, and though the show had a number of faults, its warmer moments and rounded characters were very promising indeed. Oliver Fenwick was marked out as a talent to watch.
