Descrizione

Maisie loves Sheldon, but Sheldon's not so sure. He suffers from indigestion. But maybe it's not indigestion, maybe it's love?

Jimmy Osborne's Maisie Says She Loves Me is a one-man play about love, inheritance and not letting your feelings show.

It was first seen at the Lincoln Performing Arts Centre and Paines Plough’s pop-up venue Roundabout, before being selected for the 2017 VAULT Festival, London.
