For over 400 years the smell of coffee has seeped into our streets, our lives, our society.
Hub for gossip, romance, political tub thumping, dodgy deals, completing a new pitch, book clubs, a moment alone, escaping being alone - if walls
And in one coffee shop in a town just over the horizon, those walls can talk, time escapes us and those that visit the coffee house, dream in the coffee house, plot and scheme in the coffee house all vie for our attention in a beautifully nuanced, funny and poignant new play about the dark stuff.
