Royal Court [Off West End]

“Very strong performances (particularly Dolan)... Manages to turn memory loss into something exotic, even strangely alluring. ”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“A work of quietly devastating power, in which feelings of distress, disturbance and danger gradually accumulate... fascinating. ”

Aleks Sierz (Arts Desk, The Stage)

“Structural flair and adroitly devastating emotional power... A terrific feat of imagination and vividly marshalled fact. ”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Blends kitchen-sink realism with overblown imagery... robust performances... The most poignant parts are the least elaborate. ”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“While... Wilson makes a strikingly confident debut, her play’s restless ingenuity stifles its emotional impact. ”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Sensitive, boldly innovative, but ultimately overburdened by its own ambition... In places overly elaborate and deliberate. ”

Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)

“A soupy, sentimental mish-mash; as pat as it is portentous... Never finds the slipperiness or the fluidity of thought.. Bleurgh.”

Matt Trueman (What's On Stage, Time Out)

“A blunt attempt to explore the emotional impact of early-onset Alzheimer’s. ”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“I felt bludgeoned... as it set out the issues; relentlessly, ferociously, endlessly reinforcing itself. ”

Ann Treneman (Times)
