The play - Elderly spinster sisters Ursula and Janet live in a small Cornish fishing village. In the Spring of 1936, they are stunned to find a young Polish man on their local beach who has been washed overboard during a storm. At first unable to communicate as they nurse him back to health, the two sisters’ lives are transformed by the presence of this handsome stranger, but their bond is disturbed by a holidaying Russian artist who hears his musical talent and vies for his attention.

The characters


50+. The product of a very sheltered life.

Sweet,romantic and vulnerable.


Ursula's older sister (but not by very much). Long widowed; more realistic and sharper than her sister.


40's . Very Cornish,down to earth and practical. Sees her role as the organiser of the sisters with whom she has a fond but quirky relationship.


20ish; Polish,German speaking and very musically talented. He has a magical appeal to the sisters especially Ursula.


40's,50's. Capable; very English; widowed and lonely.


30's/40's. Elegant and rather "brittle"with a ruthless streak.
