Kevin Elyot's follow-up to My Night With Reg has a similar sensitivity to embarrassment and longing, but a more poetic quality in its beautifully etched portrait of first love. Mark Thompson provides yet another ravishingly evocative set (see Never Land, above) and Adrian Scarborough's performance is truly touching. A beautifully composed chamber piece.
