‘When the barman pointed to the cordoned-off area I was like, who are all these old people at our reunion?’
It’s been thirty years since former flames Alex and Jason last saw each other. With their carefree university days long behind them, the student reunion seems the perfect opportunity to reconnect, revive and relive their heyday. But as they flirt with reigniting their passion – even if just for one night – will the march of time get in the way?
Deborah Bruce’s Raya is a witty and tender play about whether or not we can ever turn back – or stop – the clocks. It opened at Hampstead Theatre Downstairs, London, in June 2021, directed by the theatre’s Artistic Director, Roxana Silbert.
Deborah Bruce’s other plays include Godchild, The Distance and The House They Grew Up In.
