Anything is Possible if You Think About It Hard Enough

Anything is Possible if You Think About It Hard Enough

by Cordelia O'Neill

Alex and Rupert aren't a conventional match, but a caffeinated meeting on the Underground ignites a spark. Skip forward to them fighting over baby names, nursery colours and ways to save money. All the signs of a normal family in waiting.

Then Alex goes into labour, their baby is born still – and their world implodes. What follows is a window into how a couple find the strength to move forward, the will to stay together, and the determination to keep alive the memory of their child.

Anything is Possible if You Think About It Hard Enough takes us to the depths of grief to find hope, and to the edge of insanity to find reason. There is humour, too, in the most unexpected places.

Cordelia O'Neill's play was first presented by Small Things Theatre at Southwark Playhouse, London, in September 2021.
