The Distance

BY DEBORAH BRUCE

15-19 November 2016

OSO- Barnes, London

"Really strong performances all round, the detail was impressive"      

Deborah Bruce - Playwright 

"Very polished production" "A well crafted inaugural production"

The Distance takes a shockingly funny and wry look at the love lives of three young professional women today - their hopes and ambitions, their confusing relationships, and their children.

This funny, dark, witty, and perceptive comedy explores the meaning of a lifelong commitment –

will you go the distance for your children?
