The story of Tom and Viv, their love and the life they’ve shared together – from first spark to dying light. But not necessarily in that order.

A surprising and touching tale about a couple, one of whom is suffering from Alzheimer’s, and their enduring efforts to hold their relationship together through the years.

“Rejoices in the ‘living in the moment’, here and now truth of love... Grey and Arends are spectacularly genuine... Loveable.”

Joe Vesey-Byrne (Independent)

“Bernays’ short, bruising play tenderly tracks a relationship of enduring devotion back and forth through time.”

Sam Marlowe (The Times, The Stage, Time Out, Arts Desk)

“Bittersweet... A slip of a thing... Quietly upsetting... Arends and Grey play Tom and Viv with beguiling ease and believability.”

Daisy Bowie-Sell (What's On Stage, Time Out, Telegraph)

“Arends and Grey make an agreeable pair... We don’t spend long enough immersed in their lives to feel the full impact.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Shape-shifting in terms of scenes... With two people playing all the parts, it can get confusing.”

Ann Treneman (Times)
