Casey’s new boyfriend Brett is handsome, romantic and devoted – a dream come true.

He writes poetry! He makes quiche! For once in her life Casey is in a relationship with a man who attends to her every whim and desire. But when her suspicious sister Cynthia starts digging into Brett’s past, she threatens to take away the one good thing that’s ever happened to Casey…  

Somewhere Out There You, Nancy Harris’s dazzling world premiere, is a romantic comedy with a twist, playfully unravelling the love stories we weave for ourselves and inviting us to question what compels us to tell them in the first place. 

Somewhere Out There You premieres as part of Dublin Theatre Festival. Playwright Nancy Harris spoke at the festival launch in July – read her speech in full here.
