Preview by Peter Walters.
Over a midsummer weekend in Edinburgh two characters meet. Bob is a failing car salesman who's drifted into the fringes of the city's underworld. Helena's a high-powered divorce lawyer with a taste for other people's husbands.
There's no reason why they should find each other attractive and fall into bed. But of course they do.
Described as a comic tale of falling in love when you least expect it, David Greig and Gordon McIntyre's play also features songs and original music in a playful mix of wit and tunefulness.
