Tell Me on a Sunday charts the romantic misadventures of a young English girl newly arrived in New York. Brimming with optimism, she seeks success, companionship and, of course, love. But as she weaves her way through the maze of the city and her own anxieties, frustrations and heartaches she begins to wonder whether - in fact - she's been looking for love in all the wrong places.
Touring from 30 August, the show plays locally at the Kings Theatre, Southsea (25 – 26 October), Pavilion Theatre, Bournemouth (2 November), the Playhouse, Weston-Super-Mare (11 - 13 November), and the Octagon, Yeovil (15 November).
