Beautifully evocative happy sad illustration of a long marriage. I saw the play, but reading it was even more moving.

I didn't love this. The dialogue is often minimalistic and I couldn't always picture in my head what was happening. It's obviously the kind of play that you need to see, not read, in order to really appreciate it. Loved the "I cream my face" speech, though.

I came to this as a reading for a friend's wedding - which perhaps may be an unusual route to such a work. Nonetheless, I enjoyed it immensely.

Had to study this for AS Drama. I loved the script and the performance I saw was amazing, well worth seeing.

A beautiful portrayal of a 'real' relationship. A love story that isn't perfect and has changed and adapted with what life had thrown at it. That's what makes this story so powerful, it's truthful.

Filmic, scenic, great basis for a physical theatre production. Wonderful idea of interweaving couples. Great that the mundane is turned into a truly relatable story and process of life.

Scheduled for a call back for this beautiful play at New Village Arts in July. Jessica Tandy-esque.
