A universal love story that celebrates the human race in all its glorious messiness, confusion and joy.

A man wakes in the middle of the night to discover that the world has stopped. Through the crack in his bedroom curtains he can see no signs of life at all...other than a light in the house opposite where a woman in an over-sized Bowie T-shirt stands, looking back at him.

Starring BAFTA nominated Julie Hesmondhalgh (Coronation Street, Broadchurch), The Greatest Play… is squashed full of exquisite observation and heartbreaking beauty.
