Simon Stephens ,

Andrew Scott reprises his acclaimed performance in Simon Stephens' unforgettable story about family, fear and the things that can't be undone.

"One of the most devastating 30 minutes you are ever likely to experience in the theatre."
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

Things for Alex are good. He loves his wife, his daughter, his city, his job. But sometimes the force of life can crash against you. Sometimes everything you thought you could always depend on can be taken away.

"As engaging and devastating a piece of theatre as you're likely to find... packs an enormous emotional punch... A spellbinding reminder of the power of story-telling in all its glorious simplicity."

★★★★★ The Independent

“The sublime attention to detail in Scott’s performance, and director George Perrin’s instincts for how he becomes engulfed in a huge space, have a hypnotic effect. He seduces you. He disarms you. He burrows deep into your mind. He destroys you.”

★★★★★ Irish Times

"It's a delicate wisp of a thing, like a curl of cigarette-smoke exhaled in a moment of mournful reverie. After contact with it, sure enough, your eyes are welling up, and you're starting to choke."

Daily Telegraph

"Electrifyingly superb... like an emotional rip tide. This is a staggeringly harrowing piece of writing and a superlative production. Not to be missed."
