The Moment Before an Explosion
By Sera Mustafa

A&B are about to start the rest of their lives together. Woman 1&2 have just met and the spark is unavoidable. Mum & Son are drifting further away from each other with every passing day. Three relationships, all irrevocably connected, on the verge of both flourishing and shattering. The play explores the transition between the life and death of a relationship, and what happens in the moment you are separated from someone you love. Ideas of the multiverse and quantum physics provoke the question- is their love so strong that it can exist in an alternative universe if it can't exist in this one?
