One Day When We Were Young
29 May - 3 June 2023, 7.30 pm
“I am scared, that once this war is over, and I am sent home, that you won’t be here. That you might be gone.”
Leonard and Violet, young, restless, and in love, spend their first night together knowing it may also be their last. It’s 1942 and, in a hotel room in Bath, they dream of their future while preparing for Leonard’s departure to the war. But the bombs begin to fall and their world will never be the same again.
In the year 2002, the couple looks back at what might have been.
Just a Regular House Productions is back in our favourite pub basement, this time for a limited run of Payne’s beautifully heart-wrenching story of a love that never, and always was.
