Two Hearts
Laura Lethlean
Wednesday 20 June, 6pm-7pm. Free entry. Gasworks Theatre Foyer.

Our eyes meet, across the kitchen, full of bodies pressing against each other: olives in a jar.
The third floor of an old townhouse in Darlington. It’s hot. They’re single. Why not? But what about love? Would it be a waste to fall in love now, so early in life? What if it all goes right? or worse, what if they waste it? Is love just distraction? Does it come out in the wash, in the daily waste?

Can you ever really rid yourself of the people you once loved?
