About this product
- DescriptionAn eighteen-year-old girl, recently arrived in London from Ireland, is enrolled in drama school. Incent, nervous, the youngest in her class, she is eager to make an impression, to do well. She meets a man-older, a well-regarded actor in his own right-and falls for him. But he's haunted by more than a few demons-and their tumultuous relationship might be the undoing of them both. Set across the bedsits and squats of mid-nineties rth London, The Lesser Bohemians is a story of love and incence, joy and discovery, the grip of the past and the struggle to be new again.
