Two single strangers, left alone in their studio apartments on a Saturday night, pass their time with sweetly secret, unshared fantasies, never knowing that they're just a floor away from each other and the end of their lonely dreams.
Together they breathe new theatrical life and meaning into a collection of trunk songs that were culled from the final productions of Anyone Can Whistle, Follies, Company, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, and A Little Night Music.
A smart, funny, sophisticated and moving evening, and a fascinating look at "the songs that got away."

Praise for Euphonia Studio's last production at The Drayton Arms Theatre (Hedda Gabler, October 2017)
"Euphonia have managed to create a piece of theatre which is gripping, weirdly beautiful and deeply, achingly human...Director Alisdair Kitchen has adapted Ibsen’s masterpiece with skill and sense...An intelligent, poignant and moving production, and most definitely worth the considerable emotional energy you will inevitably expend."
