It is Brighton, 1959, and the theatre at the end of the pier is having its best summer season in years. Ronnie, a brilliant young magician, and Evie, his dazzling assistant, are top of the bill, drawing audiences each night. Meanwhile, Jack â€“ Jack Robinson, as in â€˜before you can sayâ€™ â€“ is everyoneâ€™s favourite compÃ¨re, a born entertainer, holding the whole show together.
As the summer progresses, the off-stage drama between the three begins to overshadow their theatrical success, and events unfold which will have lasting consequences for all their futures.
Rich, comic, alive and subtly devastating,Â Here We AreÂ is a masterly piece of literary magicianship which pulls back the curtain on the human condition.
