Ordinary Time

“I don’t know if I can tell you the truth. What if truth were prismatic, everyone looking through fruit-coloured panes?”
So begins a conversation between two people who have never met. Join Anthony Lawrence and Audrey Molloy on a lyrical journey through time and space, exploring themes of impermanence, distance, extinction, friendship and love, through the natural and imagined landscapes of time travel.
