Not available. 4 stars all round seems to be the professional opinion. More
than a little slow in the first half for many, but a tear-jerking ending for
Sally Cookson's direction is fluid and inventive, and there's much praise for
Benji Bower's live score with it. Selena Cadell's performance is noted, as is
the movement from the entire cast as they wait to be called into the action. The
stroppy adolescence, the powerless of disease and old age are all captured
equally well and the effects are considered to add to the whole.
Perhaps the slow start and sometimes over-wrought moments are the reason a
star is missing from many reviews, but it still seems to be regarded as a highly
worthwhile production that shouldn't be missed if possible.
