Conversations with Friends: What is it about?
The show explores sexuality and passion. Frances (Alison Oliver) is a college student and aspiring writer. She has a special friendship with her former girlfriend Bobbi (Sasha Lane).
The pair are inseparable and perform poetry together in Dublin. There, they are spotted by journalist Melissa (Jemima Rooper) and her husband, actor Nick (Joe Alwyn).
While Bobbi and Melissa flirt for the whole audience, Frances can’t help but reciprocate Nick’s advances.
This intense romance eventually becomes too much for Frances to take. It makes her question her relationship with Bobbi and forces her to change who she is at a fundamental level.
