“People are so far away from one another
And, very often, the people who are the furthest apart
Are those who love each other.”
– Rainer Maria Rilke, Kismet
What happens when two people meet who have nothing in common but their love for one another?
Someone of Significance follows the relationship of Rosie, a prominent leftwing politician, and Brad, the CEO of a multinational corporation, exploring the beliefs and structural barriers that keep us apart and the irresistible need for connection that brings us together.
The play is based on a short play by the same name that was developed as part of and performed by Chelsea Rep and The Acting Studio. The full length version of the play is being developed as part of the Young Vic’s Neighbourhood Voices Programme.
