Product Description

Review

Macmillan's play is at once harrowing and blisteringly funny, bleak and redemptive...It combines hyper-real dialogue with a quirky form that expands and contracts time before our eyes, creating the almost physical sensation of being hurtled towards an uncertain future. The piece s furious pace lives up to its title, leaving audience, and no doubt actors, feeling the need to pause for breath in a world that does not allow it.' 5* --What's On Stage

Duncan Macmillan's distinctive, off-kilter love story is brutally honest, funny, edgy and current. 4 stars --Guardian

Both uproariously funny … and unbearably poignant… an engaging and poignant piece. 4 stars --Exeunt Magazine

Duncan Macmillan's distinctive, off-kilter love story is brutally honest, funny, edgy and current. It gives voice to a generation for whom uncertainty is a way of life... bravely written, startlingly structured. --Lyn Gardner, Guardian

Both uproariously funny … and unbearably poignant… an engaging and poignant piece. 4 stars --Exeunt Magazine

Format: Paperback
I saw this on stage last night and bought the script at the theatre. It is witty, fast paced (though he knows when to slow it right down) and sometimes unbearably moving, performed on a bare set with little physical action so that the words have to do the work.

A lot of people would say plays are meant to be seen rather than read, but this is a must read for anyone who writes dialogue. Macmillan has a superb ear of the rhythm of speech. The opening overlapping duologue, the two page single sentence monologue following on - open it anywhere and you've a masterclass. I wish I'd written it.
