The Last Post

last post small

Step on board the pillar-box red van-atorium known as Mobile Sorting Office 451 and be transported to a world where snail mail reigns supreme.

Surrounded by postage paraphernalia from a much-travelled life you’ll meet Verity, the irrepressible heiress of an international pen-pal agency, and Red, a redundant postmaster. Witness the unwrapping of their curious love story, accompanied by live music, provided by Tomaz (who arrived one day in a jiffy bag).

Following the play you’re invited to stay for a tot of sherry and a rummage in the stationery supplies before hopping onto a vintage typewriter or picking up a quill to write that letter you’ve been meaning to send. If you need some inspiration you can pick up a postcard from the ‘Friends for Pens’ pin-board and write to a real life recipient who is waiting for your letter.
