City Love - CLF Art Café - casting announced
IAN Bonar (as Jim) and Natasha Broomfield (Lucy) will star in award-winning writer Simon Vinnicombe’s striking new play, City Love, which will be performed at the Bussey Building’s atmospheric and trendsetting CLF Art Café from September 9 to September 28, 2013.
Lucy and Jim are alone. To the rest of the world they seem to be doing OK: they have jobs, friends, ambitions (well sort of). Until their chance meeting on the number 12 night bus causes them to spiral into a world of love, pain and (mis)communication.
