Josh and Lydia are captivated by the arrival of fellow student Charlotte. Not only is she exceptionally smart, gaining top marks in all her essays and offering fresh insight during seminars, she’s also significantly older and curiously private. Where’s she from and what’s her history? Why has she enrolled at university now? As the relationship between the undergraduates deepens so does the mystery surrounding Charlotte…

Will Mortimer’s professional debut is a warm and witty comedy that explores unlikely friendships, second chances, and how the thrill of learning is not just for the young.

Caitlin McLeod’s previous credits include Brenda (Hightide) and And I And Silence(Signature Theater, New York).
