“The play uses dialogue and choreographed movement to tell the story of Linda who 29 years before was forced to give up Sal by her parents. Basing the work on real accounts of Birth Mothers through the National Parents Network, it drives home the mixed emotions and pain bound up in the experience. What makes this more than a straight forward play is the clever choreography – chorus dancers are used throughout to convey the emotions, communication difficulties and harsh realities of it all to great effect.”
David Schaffer Southern Daily Echo.
“The play is a sense bombardment. It encompasses strong Acting, dance music and an atmosphere of compassion and stimulation. As an adopted person, I found it made me squirm as I was faced with similar situations myself. This play spoke the words I never dared say and punched where I had only thought of it.”
