The Play

Nina is Peruvian, she lives in flat 243 (officially the unluckiest house number in the UK).  Her neighbour Ali speaks a completely different language and is the opposite to Nina in every way. But you don't get to choose your neighbours, and in this dark comedy Nina and Ali are forced to face the world together.

Inspired by El Nino and La Nina, the fierce Peruvian weather phenomenon that causes simultaneous storms and droughts across the planet.
