"Robin Lefevre's production is an intense rollercoaster that hits you with so many feelings. The direction is aggressive and the movements are highly physical. The pair literally throw each other about, and Rees and Connolly-Burnham both give 100% commitment throughout. Leaving nothing to the imagination, everything is laid out onto a plate for the audience to see.

One thing's for sure; this isn't a conventional love story. But it's one definitely not to miss."
