THE latest production to visit Dalston's Arcola theatre is a thoughtful comedy about a very odd pair indeed.

In Company Along the Mile, transvestite Stella pays an ordinary bloke called George to meet her every afternoon in a seedy Blackpool hotel for sandwiches and a chat.

But their peculiar and private routine is then disturbed by a knock at the door.

The play explores their curious arrangement, their need for companionship, their loneliness and the possibility of change.
