★★★★★ "It is impossible to take your eyes off Janie Dee... Alfie Friedman is superb. Extraordinary" Daily Mail

Double Olivier award winner and Bath favourite Janie Dee stars in this brand new play from Stephen Unwin. 

Connor is, well, Connor. He loves buses, Eddie Stobart, and Lego. He also has learning disabilities. When he dies an entirely preventable death in NHS care, his mum Sara can’t get a straight answer as to how it happened. But Sara and her family won’t stop asking questions and soon an extraordinary campaign emerges.

Both personal and political, Sara Ryan’s impassioned, frank, and surprisingly funny story bursts onto the stage for the first time. Writer and Director Stephen Unwin returns following the sold out hit Farm Hall.
