Anna Himali Howard Will Direct GRACELAND By Ava Wong Davies at Royal Court Theatre

"There was a cliff on the horizon. I didn't know, but then again, maybe I did, and I just didn't want to look."

She meets him at an old friend's barbecue, ketchup dribbling down her chin, face ruddy from too much beer. He stands away from everyone else, beautiful and aloof. Their stories couldn't be more different, but they flirt, and then they fall in love.

Everything is perfect, until it isn't. Or maybe it never was.

"I didn't -

I don't -

Believe in love at first sight.

But it feels like I am falling.

What else would you call that?"

Graceland was developed as part of an Introduction to Playwriting group at the Royal Court and is a Sister co-production.
