And with all themes of displacement and loss comes the yearning for a sense of place, for those attachments we cannot always rationalize but know as home.

Nelson continues to give compassionate and insightful life to such erotic waywardness.'New York Times'It moves with the breathless haste of a horny teen on prom night.'Time Out New YorkMadame Melville'A memory play of wonderful delicacy, tenderness and humour...

I left the theatre elated at having discovered such a terrific new play.
