This is a memory play, suffused by nostalgia, and also a clever evocation of another era... [but] more seethes beneath the surface than is initially apparent. Though unashamedly old-fashioned and sometimes sentimental, the play is emotionally delicate too, and often astute about dependency, the way our parents shape us and how hard it is to say 'I love you'. --Lyn Gardner, The GuardianAbout the Author:
