Audience Reviews

" ... oh my ... I don't know what to say ... except don't miss it! If you've ever loved, if you've ever wanted to love ... let this truly wonderful play take you there and then some ... you'll be in fits of laughter, your heart strings will be pulled this way and that, you might even shed a tear or two (I did)"

" ... words cannot describe ... you have to, you've got to, you must, please see this play. I don't remember feeling that blown away by a piece of theatre - not for a long time. You will laugh, guaranteed. You will shed a few tears, also guaranteed, and you will most definitely fall in love with all the characters"

Critics Reviews

" ... an extraordinarily touching and uplifting evening of theatre ... a stunning piece of writing" ~ The Stage

" ... it has a loveliness all its own ... Gorgeous ... a paean to the sustaining power of love" ~ The Times

" ... finds extraordinary beauty in the ordinary lives of its characters ... this 90-minute piece contains much that is unobtrusively beautiful" ~ Financial Times

" ... a hugely affecting and uplifting piece of theatre that feels vitally important ... this writing sings with such freshness and clarity that you won't know whether to laugh or cry (you'll probably do both) ~ The Public Reviews

" ... a hugely engaging writer but what makes him so special is his gift of making the small change of everyday lives shine so brightly" ~ Telegraph

"Wells has the rare gift of being able to capture the goodness that resides amongst people with an unfashionable and unforced warmth and highly observant ear and eye for comedy ... Unreservedly recommended" ~ Independent

" ... truly exceptional, sparkling with wit and dialogue so natural that at times you forget you're watching a scripted play and feel you're spying on a real-life dressing room ... funny and genuinely moving ... " ~ whatsonstage

"Beautifully observed, gently humorous and full of feeling" ~ The Arts Desk
