"Afterglow has had a truly incredible journey, and we are thrilled to have passed this milestone in our lovely home at The Davenport. The response from our audience has been nothing short of overwhelming, with some of our fans returning to the show over and over again. I am so proud of the entire team behind our little play that could; we can't wait to get to work on the next one."
