Alf's memories come in flashes and great blank holes, along with a running commentary from the voices of his past.

Critical Reception[]

  • ‘‘A beautifully written, magnificently acted tragi-comedy,’ - Chris Campling, The Times, radio choice
  • ‘The skill of the writing lies in the way it wraps past and present, conveying the episodic, disjointed, random nature of memory… done with great care and compassion from start to finish,’ - Paul Donovan, The Sunday Times, Pick of the day
