Jack Thorne's drama which follows the socialist parenting styles of Sal and David across the years.
Unconventional parents, Sal and David attempt to raise their children in a way that aligns with their socialist values but soon realise that none of their children are truly happy. A new play by Jack Thorne and directed by John Tiffany who previously collaborated on "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child" and "Let the Right One In".
Kate O’Flynn and Lesley Sharp give stunning performances in Jack Thorne’s family drama...a heartfelt and likeable tribute to Thorne’s parents’ generation that takes too long to warm up to really make its point.'
while Jack Thorne’s new play is avowedly personal, always interesting and beautifully staged by John Tiffany, it left me wishing for a deeper connection between the family foreground and the historical background.'
...an intimate drama based on Thorne's own family, which resolutely refuses to fly...there are a lot of clever lines, but they often seem imposed on the characters rather than arising naturally from their thoughts.'
Brooding, dysfunctional family charts course from Blair to Brexit...while it’s animated by serious ideas about progressive values and packed with quotable lines, it has a frustrating lack of focus.'
