A beautifully crafted play from the American playwright, author of Tape and associate writer of The Laramie Project, whose events are echoed in this play.

Twenty-four years ago, the future was going to be different. Molly was going to be happy; older and smarter and married with kids. Ray was going to be a heart surgeon.

When they meet again, by chance – she divorced and childless; he a caretaker and gardener – they discover that their lives are even further from that future than they could have imagined.

Steeped in both regret and possibility, Dusk Rings A Bell is about the difficulty of taking responsibility for our choices, and how life will make them for us, if we're not careful.

Stephen Belber's play Dusk Rings A Bell was first staged by Atlantic Theater Company in New York in 2010. It had its UK premiere at HighTide Festival in Suffolk in 2011.

'A finely-judged two-hander that locates itself in the grey areas of motivation and personal responsibility, asking questions of how much control we have over our lives'
