Time After Time


One playlist. Two people. Three lives.

Press Play…
Claire is a grammar school girl from Greater Manchester with a crush on a 1950’s Italian film star. Daniel, at boarding school in Kent, has a passion for clocks and Keats. In April 1978 they meet on a school trip to Italy. Against all odds, in the days of telephone boxes, tape recorders and British Rail their passionate love survives on a diet of letters, photographs and music. Until the summer of ’79, when everything changes.

Forward…
It’s 1999, Claire’s father has died, her career’s a farce, and her marriage barren. Lost and lonely, she looks for Daniel…

Fast forward…
Christmas 2017: Claire is recording a playlist, and writing a letter to Daniel from Venice, which she will never send.
But why?

Pause…
As the music takes her on an emotional rollercoaster, should she now reveal the secrets she has kept locked away?

Or will she throw the past, like a grenade, into the present?

Set in Venice, this is a bittersweet love story about music, memory and looking for the one you love - time after time.

The Playlist is an integral part of the story. Please listen to the tracks as you read.
