Before After is a rehearsed reading of a brand new musical love story by Stuart Matthew Price and Timothy Knapman, starring real-life husband and wife duo Rosalie Craig (Company, London Road, wonder.land) and Hadley Fraser (City of Angels, The Vote, Young Frankenstein, The Antipodes).
Ami (Rosalie Craig) meets Ben (Hadley Fraser) by a tree on a beautiful hillside. She recognises him instantly: they were once very much in love. But Ben doesn’t remember her at all. What went so terribly wrong in the past, and is there a chance that, in the present, these two lovers might just find their happy ever after, after all?
