Really sorry, I don't think this was beautiful. I think it was clumsy. Where was the love? I saw it in the older couple - but where in the younger couple..? I didn't see how they could possibly become the more devoted older couple. It is a stinker of a script - and I'm an Abi Morgan fan. It is wafer thin, with everything pointing to what's going to happen in the final scene from a pretty early stage. Very empty for me, with only 2 scenes that were memorable for me in the whole play: the end scene and the telephone message left by Sian Phillips. There should have been more. I should have been devastated. I know that Frantic Assembly has its house-style, but really, it should have been modified to suit the ages of the actors. There were very uncomfortable 'community dance' moments in it, where several members of the audience around me laughed. The movement should have been modified to the capability of the actors. And, actually, the movement wasn't up to very much all round. It was very below par, as was the script. Some socks need to be pulled up I think.
