Time Was

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Hugh Leonard 

  • Synopsis

    When Bea and John visit Ellie and P.J., John explains his theory that so many people are longing for the simplicity of bygone days that Time has ruptured and people are disappearing back into the past. Similarly people we want to see again are appearing by the score! The comedy dissolves later to show the strains of suburbia underneath until P.J. wishes himself back - and disappears.
