Reviews

One of the most devastating 30 minutes you are ever likely to experience in the theatre * Lyn Garnder, Guardian *
As engaging and devastating a piece of theatre as you're likely to find... packs an enormous emotional punch... A spellbinding reminder of the power of story-telling in all its glorious simplicity. * Independent *
It's a delicate wisp of a thing, like a curl of cigarette-smoke exhaled in a moment of mournful reverie. After contact with it, sure enough, your eyes are welling up, and you're starting to choke. * Daily Telegraph *
