century, and whistleblowers in today’s world. A 5-star rated, award-winning production that weaves together two stories: a couple from a time past attempt to dig themselves a brighter future whilst a couple from time present face the repercussions of whistle-blowing. Rooted in both historical and contemporary events, the twin stories twist around each other as the pressure builds.
