A couple are teetering on the brink of marriage. As the happiest day of their lives approaches, the panic begins to rise. And everyone’s watching.

Through the eyes of a jaded therapist and an awkward teenage girl we witness a case study of longing, envy, disappointment and violent urges, examining our obsession with seeking fulfilment at any cost.

For anyone who’s ever wanted to stand on a windswept plain, howling for lost love.

Inspired by the Peggy Lee song, Is That All There Is? this is the latest show from Inspector Sands, winners of the Edinburgh International Festival Fringe Prize 2009. Their award-winning hit debut Hysteria has toured extensively around the UK and internationally.

“The excellent Inspector Sands. A wickedly funny and well-honed piece in which situation comedy veers from everyday banality to surreal imaginings” The Herald
