A tender but truthful exploration of love and ageing, asking how we choose to live in the face of soaring life expectancies.

'We're not here forever. You've got to take a chance from time to time. Sometimes you've got to see something you like and grab hold. Don't let it go.'

Harry feels like life is beginning to tick down, his autumn years spent quietly caring for the community he loves. Denise thinks life begins in retirement and she's dancing like she's still at high school. When their paths cross at the village hall, their understanding of the time they have left changes irrevocably. What do community, growing old, and falling in love really mean? And who gets to decide anyway?

Winner of the Papatango New Writing Prize, Trestle premieres at Southwark Playhouse, London, in November 2017.
