SOON UNTIL FOREVER is a tiny little jewel of a play. Poetic and honest and nuanced and beautifully directed and acted at the 503. –Simon Stephens

Directed by Rachel Parish. Written by Shireen Mula. Developed with Liz Boag & Nadia Malik. Performed by Jennifer Jackson, Soon Until Forever premiered at Theatre503 in April 2013.

Jamie and Emily live in a fifth floor flat in South London. They’re in love. Perfect. It’s perfect. Until… now. Now, Emily has stopped speaking. Emily isn’t eating. It’s been days. All Jamie wants to do is to make Emily warm again. To stop the shaking.

 A tender and visceral new work developed from Firehouse’s Big Idea Workshop, explores what happens when the person we thought we’d grow up to be conflicts with the person we are. Soon Until Forever is a lyrical account of isolation, love and longing as one couple query – can we survive on just a kiss?
