Finding one true soulmate is fortunate.
Finding two, life becomes complicated.

Meet Simon and Carey - the perfect couple. He has some news to share, but she gets in first with a jar. The swearing has to stop. They are having a baby!

But when Carey gets together with a new friend and musician to throw Simon a birthday concert, she takes us into her past and we discover the greatest secret her husband ever kept…

Kate Hewlitt’s bittersweet comedy blends quirky characters with heartbreak and humour, interspersed with live acoustic songs, shows us that whatever curve-balls life throws, it’s still possible to have a happy ending.

We look forward to touring this universally relatable story in Spring 2023.

Welcome

New Perspectives is the East Midlands touring theatre company. 

Founded in 1973, we champion new writing, under-represented voices and powerful stories, touring world-class theatre into the heart of communities reaching rural audiences where they live.

We believe that all people, whatever their age, circumstance or identity, have the right to access practice and inspire theatre and that all places can be sites of exciting cultural exchange.
