A modern and magical fable by Rachel Joyce. Two women, a young man and a tightrope in the middle of an empty field. It is the art of balance and the transforming powers of the places that lie in the middle. Highly-strung Sylvia is a business woman whose boss has sent her on a course about stress and anger. She sets off looking for balance.com but instead she finds herself in an empty field. She is not alone. Also in this field is Celeste who is waiting for the secret of eternal happiness. As they look around the empty field with mild despair they realise, in amazement, that there are two wooden towers and between them a tightrope. With Deborah Findlay, Niamh Cusack and. Joseph Kloska.
