Crying is not mandatory, but only the hard of heart will remain completely unmoved.' ? Guardian Deeply moving, potently mixing memory and desire as the young and old couples interact in passages of superbly eloquent choreography" 4 stars ? Telegraph "This portrait of ageing and enduring love tugs at the heartstrings" ? Independent 'A ravishing piece of work... The sadness of mortality, the sense of loss, is balanced by the delightful quirkiness of Morgan's text, which is by turns playful and illuminating" 4 stars ?
