Ramona Tells Jim | Bush Theatre | 20 Sep-21 Oct
“Deep in the Scottish Highlands, Ramona falls for Jimmy’s awkward charm but gets caught in a scandal that will haunt her for years to come.

Determined to clear her conscience, she heads back to the Highlands to find that neither her nor Jim’s lives have turned out how they had planned.” This darkly comic play from Bush Theatre Emerging Writers’ Group member and actor Sophie Wu sounds rather promising, head this way to find out more.
