A play with songs by Adam Lenson
At Summerhall's Edinburgh Fringe 2023
Everyone has that one big decision, that one big choice, that one big ‘what if?’. 

There's a you that made that choice, and there's another you that didn't.

Fifteen years ago, you stop training to be a doctor and choose to be a theatre director instead.

But in 2019 when you are diagnosed with cancer, the various versions of you collide.

This life-affirming new play with songs is about learning to live with the choices you made instead of worrying about the ones you didn't.
