The play is described as follows: "In 1919 Britain, Mrs. Conway is full of optimism during her daughter's lavish 21st birthday celebration. The Great War is over, wealth is in the air, and the family's dreams bubble over like champagne. Leap 19 years into the future, though, and the Conways' lives have transformed unimaginably. This time-jumping play by J.B. Priestley (An Inspector Calls) takes place at the crossroads of today and tomorrow — challenging viewers' notions of choice, chance, and destiny."
