The Long Game


A performed reading of Caitlin Shannon’s brilliant new play

at RADA in London, for Women@RADA on Wednesday 6th July at 7pm

Venue: RADA Club Theatre, 16 Chenies Street

Dr. Eliza Nightingale is a leading Fusion Physicist, ready to retire in her mid-thirties, and run away with her younger Paleo-lifestyle loving boyfriend – until an unexpected inheritance stands in her way. Before she can go, she is forced to negotiate with her passionate physicist father, her ex-husband, and her own creeping sense of loss and grief.
