Script here. ‘Getting Through To Harry’ by Philip Ayckbourn.

 

Audition Pieces Here

 

When Harry Thomas attempts to make contact with his deceased wife Lottie, it opens up an unusual communication that brings him face to face with some bittersweet truths. Is he as guilty as he thinks he is for her death? And is she as innocent as she appeared to be in the months that led up to the fatal coach crash in Corsica? A heartfelt new play with touches of comedy.
