Phyllis Nagy's astonishingly powerful, visionary love story builds through comedy to a deeply moving final act. The rapturous quality of the writing dwarfs virtually everything else on the London stage. Like great music, the less you worry at it and the more you let its passion flood over you, the more you'll fall for it. Steven Pimlott's scrupulous production has an almost immaculate cast and when Anthony Calf haltingly sings "It's a lovely day tomorrow..." to Sheila Gish, you think your heart will break.
