Cressida has 90 minutes before her next run-through of The Seagull. She needs help.

Cressida Yorke is a young actress in trouble. She has 90 minutes before her next run-through of The Seagull. Previews are three days away. She takes refuge in an empty rehearsal room at the top of Her Majesty's Theatre, London - where she encounters five remarkable and legendary acting teachers. Can they rescue her in time? It's surprising what can happen in 90 minutes.

Marcy Kahan writes for stage and film: Antonia and Jane for BBC/Miramax and has written and dramatized over 40 original radio dramas for Radio 4, including the award-winning four series of Lunch.
