Review:

“an artful expression of grief at its most painful” 4 stars – The Telegraph

“Painfully honest, brutally humorous and certainly hopeful.... a unique and entertaining piece of theatre” – Fourth Wall Magazine

“A visceral true story of the grief, confusion and beauty.... Compelling” – Independent

“A piece that once delivered will linger in the audiences’ mind... subtle and unobtrusive... [an] emotional ride” – A Younger Theatre

“An event that is at once universally resonant and undeniably personal... touching, brave and surprisingly funny... an extraordinary – yet delightfully ordinary – story of loss and struggle, but ultimately love.” – British Theatre Guide
