Another chance to enjoy this truly modern love story from Nottingham’s own James Graham (Ink, This House, ITV’s Quiz).

Two people. One perfect date. And then, the world collapses…

Ashley and Morgan both think they’ve found The One after years of break-ups, ghosting, and swiping left. Now butterflies, a million things in common, and embarrassing fantasies about the future. But when National Lockdown is announced, they’re faced with an impossible and urgent decision – quarantine apart? Or maybe, just maybe, take the crazy decision to isolate together?

Follow two alternative versions of the couple’s future as they navigate a strange new reality together, and apart.

Starring Pearl Mackie (Doctor Who) and Jessica Raine (Call the Midwife), this punchy, playful and romantic new production premiered during our Unlocked festival last October.

How It Works

Once you have rented Bubble, you will receive an email with your e-ticket attached. This e-ticket will contain a link to the page on our website where the recording can be accessed. You will need to login to your Nottingham Playhouse account to view the video.

You will have access to the recording for five days. Please make sure you watch the show before the end of your rental period to make sure you don’t miss out.

If renting the show after Saturday 19 June 2021, please be aware that your rental period will be reduced as the recording must be taken down on Thursday 24 June 2021. We, therefore, recommend renting early to enjoy the full five days access and to avoid disappointment.

If you don’t receive your e-ticket straight away after purchasing, please check your spam/junk folders.

If you are using a smart TV, you should be able to access the show through your browser. You can find help and advice on this and more on our FAQs page.

Captioning will be available for Bubble – On Demand.

Once you’ve rented the show, you can activate the captions on the recording by clicking on the icon labelled ‘CC’ in the video frame and then select ‘English (United Kingdom) CC’. To turn captions off, repeat this process but select ‘None’ instead.

There will also be a version of the recording with BSL interpretation and audio description.
