Show Synopsis

"Solitaire for Two", written by Jeremy Sawyer and directed by Ana-Catrina Savulescu, is about solitude and solidarity, blurry dilemmas of fantasy and reality, and living with the death of love. It is a struggle in the face of ultimate mystery. Soren goes to bed with his nagging wife, Margaret. He wakes the next morning to discover a mysterious and beautiful woman whom he has never seen before in his bed. Things escalate from there. Meanwhile, in another world, an old man named Fred and a younger Bill play solitaire with their own decks and talk of love, spirits, and perverse dreams.
