Jaye Griffiths plays the role of the ever-loving mother to perfection.”




Broadway Baby – FOUR STARS

“Griffiths shifts between addressing the audience as Gupta, often with disarming directness, and inhabiting the various other figures in the story. She brings such a passionate warmth and raw commitment to the work that audiences would be forgiven for assuming she was its author.”




The Stage- MUST SEE 13/08/13

“Guided by Guy Slater’s sensitive, precise direction, Griffiths raises the intensity of an already highly charged script and tackles comedy and tragedy with equal energy and emotional depth.”




The Scotsman- FOUR STARS 17/08/13

“What is striking about the play, though, is that while it is in part a document of the social and practical problems faced by people with disabilities and their families, it also moves along on a tide of mighty poetry, like a great love song from the mother to her beautiful and brilliant boy, whose increasingly broken body contains such a passionate and intelligent mind. Nihal is, in that sense, the love of his mother’s life; and although by the end of this heart-stopping play the boy himself has gone, the powerful intertwining of their fates continues, as she sings out her truth about what was, what might have been, and what still lives with her, in her heart.”




threeweeks.co.uk FIVE STARS

“Words and communication are at the heart of this tale and the text does an excellent job of conveying hard-to-express feelings, with speech written as poetry.”




A Younger Theatre FOUR STARS 18/08/2013

“One brilliant actress with a simple but beautiful story, and really that is all you need.”
