“It’s a deeply moving love story, shown not at its inception but at its end. And, through this, it’s also a rallying cry for the essential right of women to marry one another. The love of Es and Flo, so misunderstood by their own families, represents not just a sanctuary for them, but for all who come into their orbit, including us.”

“With heart and soul, ‘Es & Flo’ is a tender portrait of a woman caring for her love, in sickness and in health.”

Lost in Theatreland (UK)
June 11th, 2023

It is obvious that this show is made by women, with an all-female cast, and just two men on the creative team, it means everything about this production feels realistic, the characters resemble real people, and the words they speak have an authentic air to them. Es & Flo’s relationship feels genuine throughout, and the performances ensure the love between the two is clear to see. Despite the storyline being emotional, and at times gut-wrenching, there’s light here, and at the end, you’re left feeling an overall sense of hope. A truly beautiful play, which provides much needed lesbian representation.
