A haunting look at the way our lives slip past us, Visitors is the latest collaboration between playwright Barney Norris and director Alice Hamilton, the duo behind 'At First Sight' and 'Fear Of Music'. Set in a farmhouse at the edge of Salisbury Plain, Visitors reveals a family falling apart. But when a young stranger with blue hair moves in to care for the elderly Edie the family are forced to question how they are living.
