What I liked

The best part of this is the acting. While all the actors are great, Amy Argyle is breath-taking, heartbreaking and devastating.
I also appreciated some of the more unconventional aspects of the story-telling, which directly engaged the audience.
A truly beautiful piece of theatre.

What I didn't like

While I loved the story, I felt that the twist in it was set up to be that – a twist. I can’t say more without spoiling it, but I felt like I would have enjoyed it more if I hadn’t figured out what the twist would be in the first few minutes of the play.
But maybe we are supposed to know and I misinterpreted that, but either way it made me antsy – wondering when Alysha (the character) would catch on to what seemed obvious.

My overall impression

Deeply moving story of love – and what it means to hold on and to let go.
