Anna and Becca aren’t where they’re supposed to be. While serving a community punishment order Becca is sent to a hospice to work and meets Anna, a cancer patient. No Place Like Hope shows the beginning of an unlikely friendship, through their conversations, their need for company and for someone to listen. In their honesty towards each other, maybe solace can be found.
No Place Like Hope is a tender, funny story of an unlikely friendship; two defiant, quick witted and feisty women, explore honesty and hope when courage is lost.
This award winning play by Callum McGowan, was written to pass the Bechdel test. With women taking leading roles on a London stage, McGowan’s play is brought to The Old Red Lion by an all female team- co produced by The So and So Arts Club and Pinpoint Create and in partnership with the incredible charity Victoria’s Promise.
Victoria’s Promise was founded to fill critical gaps in social, emotional and practical care for young women and their families going through cancer.
