More about 'Then Comes Spring...' from the playwright, James Simpson:
"I wanted to experiment with the idea of putting sound-bites, quotes and catchphrases from our celebrity, advertising and self-help cultures in the mouth of a homeless man because the irony of that juxtaposition seemed powerful to me... and considering our culture's obsession with wealth and well-being at any cost, along with the rising fear surrounding the 'financial crisis', I was interested in ways of challenging us to re-evaluate the kinds of stories we allow ourselves to be enticed by."
