The show invites audiences to eavesdrop on a book group’s monthly meet-up, discussing their latest read Rejoining Jane in their local cafe. The three dancers and the audience find themselves being carried in and out of Jane’s turbulent adventure, all within the confines of a cosy cafe. Together they delve into her story, travelling from Bromley to Papua New Guinea (via Ibiza!) with various escapades and secrets that unfold along the way.
Travel with them in their pursuit of Rejoining Jane and share in the delight that this brings - all within the confines of a cosy cafe!
