VISITING TIME by Melville Lovatt, 7.30pm, Monday 4 November

Stella returns to visit the husband and children she walked out on many years ago.

Her visit exposes a monstrous fiction, her past challenging the assumptions and perceptions of the present and changing forever the lives of the family.

With it’s own dark imagery, poetry and humour, VISITING TIME is a powerful family drama with sharp focus on the nature of loyalty and deception.

It’s unflinching portrait of a divided family proves finally to be surprisingly uplifting’.
