Set on summer evenings in the 1960s and the present day, Twilight Song traces one family’s hidden liaisons over half a century.
2017. Barry is single, middle-aged and gay. He’s lived in North London with his mother Isabella for over fifty years. Their relationship is fraught yet they cannot live apart.
1967. Barry starting school, Isabella pregnant again and parliament passing a law of liberation.
A mysterious stranger turns up in their past and their present – could he be the missing piece of the jigsaw they’ve both been yearning for?
Hilarious, heartbreaking and full of surprises, Kevin Elyot’s evocative final play proves how powerful our past can be in the present.
