Thoroughly enjoyed spending my day watching @inheritanceplay. Such a beautiful piece that made 7 hours fly by. Definitely try to grab a ticket in its final week if you can♥️

Some 7 hours later, @inheritanceplay is life-changing. What an amazing piece of theatre. Now I need to go and re-read #EMForster’s #HowardsEnd and #Maurice. Oh, and I think I need an #EricGlass in my life.

The day I was erased 😢😍🤩. I actually can’t believe how genius @lthompsonwrites actually is. This book is absolutely incredible. Without being cheesy this book couldn’t have came at a better time in my life. Be thankful for your family and friends 😍
