This is truly an ensemble piece, no-one steals the lime-light or seems like a spare part. The characterisation is brilliantly executed. We believe everything about each story and can relate to aspects of each character as they battle whatever it is that brings them together. And this is really the point. Yes, we’re in rehab with extreme stories, but all of human life is on this stage, reminding us of the beauty, fragility and complexity in us all.
This story has heart, warmth, pain and humour – dark humour! It takes you on a journey and leaves you simply saying ‘wow.’ You have to go and see this show!
