Housebound because of illness, Caroline hasn’t been to school in months. Confined to her room, she has only Facebook for company. That is until classmate Anthony bursts in – uninvited and armed with waffle fries, a scruffy copy of Walt Whitman’s poetry and a school project due in the next day… Caroline is unimpressed all round.

But an unlikely friendship develops and a seemingly mundane piece of homework starts to reveal the pair’s hopes and dreams - as well as a deep and mysterious bond that connects them even further. 

Hampstead Theatre has been closely monitoring Government advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19) and, in light of official comments made on 16 March, has suspended the presentation of its Hampstead Classics and Downstairs season until further notice.  This programme includes The Dumb Waiter, The Two Character Play, The Death of a Black Man, ‘night, Mother and, for Hampstead Downstairs, Sleepwalking.  It has also closed the building to the public.
