Adapted from the letters and writings of Dame Laurentia McLachlan, Sir Sydney Cockerell and George Bernard Shaw, close friends who exchanged a flood of correspondence during their lives. Their letters and essays are cleverly woven into a play about friendship, love of learning, and the inquiring mind’s incessant search for answers to the big questions.
