"This is a play that lies to you. Most of what you see before your eyes, you eventually learn did not really happen, at least not in the form you saw it.This is not just a gimmick, but an inventive and evocative way of taking us into a believable and very human experience it would be difficult to dramatise any other way."

The set is more than functional. It also supports the telling of the story with one coup de theatre which is just stunning.

The set is very clever with a double bed at the centre of this sporadic drama. With clothes strewn across the floor and yellow roses adorning the headboard, everything has the feel of an organised chaos as images of Elizabeth's past, present and future materialise and disappear in the blink of an eye
