Rosemary and Time, based on a true story, is about two women, working side by side in a school infirmary who discover a startling truth about one another. Set in Yorkshire England in the late 1970's, with flashbacks to 1941, the two women unearth secrets from the past and come to terms with ghosts, old relationships and time.
While visiting her beloved Yorkshire in 2010, playwright Jennifer Fell Hayes, discovered the story of two young children who were separated in the 1940's. Unable to let the story go, Jennifer started researching the tale which eventually led to a meeting with the two women. In bringing this story to life with a multigenerational cast, she explores the healing power of women who support and nurture each other through their struggles.
