RUNNING TIME / NOTICES: 50mins (no interval)

A love story, and a love letter to Chatham.

One town, one couple, forty years.

Bob and Rose meet as excited teenagers in the 70s. From their first date, it’s clear that this is the start of something special. But unknown to them, the course of their relationship is intrinsically tied to the fortunes of the Chatham Dockyard, and when it’s suddenly closed, their lives are irrevocably changed. Recovering from their losses isn’t going to be easy.
