Cordeila O’Neill’s new medical drama will run for a fortnight at Southwark Playhouse later this year. Anything is Possible if You Think About It Hard Enough performances will take place from 22 September - 9 October, with four neonatal and baby loss charities supporting the play.

The drama sees two strangers Alex and Rupert meeting on the underground, uninterested in one another. But then, as they fall in love, the pair become parents; a normal family. When Alex goes into labour, the baby is stillborn, leaving the couple to navigate postpartum depression and keeping their child’s memory alive.

The two-hander play will star Gemma Lawrence as Alex and Huw Parmenter as Rupert. The creative team includes direction by Kate Budgen, design by Camilla Clarke, lighting by Sally Ferguson and sound by Beth Duke.

Southwark Playhouse opened its doors earlier this week with You Are Here, starring Wendi Peters. Upcoming productions include Staircase from 23 June and John and Jen from 28 July

Anything is Possible if You Think About It Hard Enough is at Southwark Playhouse from 22 September - 9 October.
