Michael Crawford returns to the west end to play Leo Colston, a man who can no longer hide from the memories of his past.
Memories of the gloriously hot summer of 1900 and of his days spent in Norfolk come flooding back. Spending the holidays with his school friend Marcus in their luxurious country home, the young Leo finds himself acting as the go-between for the beautiful upper-class Marian (Gemma Sutton) and tenant-farmer Ted (Stuart Ward) who are embroiled in a secret love affair against the wishes of the formidable Mrs Maudsley (Issy Van Randwyck). The innocent Leo gets caught up in the adult world of deceit and manipulation as he risks everything in this deeply moving coming of age story.
The events of that summer and the devastating effects of love denied will shape his life forever.
