'It's England really, isn't it? A climate without cloud and rain isn't honest.'
In the ruins of a garden in rural England, in a house which was once a home, one woman searches for seeds of hope. Albion is a new play by Mike Bartlett, directed by Rupert Goold, their first collaboration following their international award-winning production of King Charles III.
