by Natasha Collie, directed by Matt Harrison

In the summer of 2008 a suitcase in the lost property office of Travel Company ‘First’ was opened to reveal 30 years of love letters between a mystery couple – with this intriguing true story as a stimulus ‘Pulling Focus’ & ‘Hot Tubs and Trampolines’ fuse music, new writing and physical storytelling to create a quirkily comic, classically modern love story.

Welcome to the world of the lost property office where lost items attract lost people. But in the home of the forgotten is out of sight ever truly out of mind? When a suitcase is opened to reveal a lifetime of love letters between a mystery couple heads and hearts begin to turn.

Join Hot Tubs and Trampolines in a pen and paper love story for a twitter generation and explore what lies behind the precious, plastic and purposefully left. Is it better to have loved and lost or spent a lifetime patiently waiting?
