Brilliant....
28 August 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Billy Connolly is a brilliant actor who became so famous for his comedy that he was effectively lost to acting. On a par with the best in his generation, his touching portrayal in this masterpiece is nothing short of brilliant. Jon Morrison also deserves mention for his excellent work here. The two men work effectively together and give the play some real resonance.A sensitive play about what it means to be grown up, and the responsibilities that brings. Perhaps slightly dated now in this day and age of gap years and mass unemployment, the play, nevertheless, has something to offer everyone. Thoroughly recommended, though very rarely seen now. A superb theatrical experience.
