ED2012 Theatre Review: And No More Shall We Part (Hampstead Theatre)
Bring a mountain of tissues, because there won’t be a dry eye in the house. A heartbreaking new drama by Tom Holloway, ‘And No More Shall We Part’ looks at the consequences of a lifetime’s love staying strong in the hardest circumstances. Pam and Dom have shared their life together, brought up and let go of their children; now Pam is sick and it will only get worse. So the couple have tough choices to make, including how to spend their final moments together. With a clever, revolving set, real food, and a plot that hurts so very much, join Pam and Dom as she lies in their bed, belly full of pills, and he has to let her go.
Traverse Theatre, 4-26 Aug (not 6, 13, 20) times vary.
