Des and Dre. Destiny and Dream. Young. Gifted. Black. She left. He stayed.

Now, tragedy brings Des and Dre crashing back into each other's lives, carrying new secrets and old scars. Caught in the space between memory and reality, they must struggle to navigate the shifting borders that threaten to rewrite their past and reshape their future.

Benedict Lombe's play Shifters is a tribute to the enduring power – and fragility – of memory and love.
