I dream about you young. When I’m asleep you’re as young as the girl I met.

Time passes. Roles Change. People become different versions of themselves.

From lover, to father, to husband, one man craves the past but knows his desire for it will destroy his family.

A sell-out at HighTide Festival 2015, Al Smith’s seminal play gets a limited run at the Royal Court ahead of a regional tour.

“Clever, discomfiting play... Takes us to some mighty uncomfortable places and then abandons us, blinking and exposed. ”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Brilliantly unsettling... An extremely deft piece of writing... uses the live theatre medium to make us doubt what we’re seeing.”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Magnificently murky and disconcerting... Twyman’s production remains taut. ”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Intricate, shape-shifting powder keg of a play... Tender, touching and heartfelt... Constantly defies interpretation. ”

Chris Bennion (The Times, The Stage, Telegraph)

“Impressively intelligent, emotionally truthful and strongly resonant... A magnificent study of the human heart. ”

Aleks Sierz (Arts Desk, The Stage)

“Tricky, elusive, queasily comic and utterly gutting... Its elegy for the transient strikes a calculatedly discomfiting note. ”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“This creepy and opaque play by the ultra-talented Al Smith features two superb performances. ”

Ann Treneman (Times)
