Nick Hern Books - The Distance cover painfully funny play about motherhood (and fatherhood), about keeping control, and about letting go.

Good friends should be there for one another – no matter what. But when Bea returns home after five years abroad, having made a bold choice about her life, old friends struggle to support her, or even to understand. One night in Brighton, things threaten to slide into chaos...

Starring Helen Baxendale and directed by Charlotte Gwinner, The Distance opens at the Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond on 8 October.

To celebrate, we're offering the chance for one lucky person to receive two tickets to a performance of The Distance at the Orange Tree Theatre (subject to availability) plus a free copy of the playscript. Tickets are valid for performances up to 31 October.
