In a farmhouse at the edge of Salisbury Plain, a family is falling apart. Stephen can't afford to put his mother into care; Arthur can't afford to stop working and look after his wife. When a young stranger with blue hair moves in to care for Edie as her mind unravels, the family are forced to ask: are we living the way we wanted?
A beautiful and sharply funny love story, Visitors also takes a haunting look at the way our lives slip past us. With a cast including Linda Bassett (East is East, Calendar Girls, Grandma’s House), it is the latest collaboration between playwright Barney Norris and director Alice Hamilton following their productions of his debut At First Sight and the acclaimed Fear Of Music.
