Love, blue hair, Celine Dion, bad jokes, poetry, major life changes.….
Set in a farmhouse on the edge of Salisbury Plain, Visitors centres on Arthur and Edie, childhood sweethearts happily married for 50 years. As Edie’s memory fades and Arthur has the occasional fall, they have to accept that they can’t carry on as they were. Unable to afford care, their middle-aged son Stephen searches for a solution and a young graduate, Kate, still looking for direction in life, moves in to help out. The play is a hymn to the beauty of life-long love: poetic, funny and heartwarming.
"infinitely touching" (Guardian), "an absolute beauty, by turns funny, tender and desperately sad", "There is great richness and an almost poetic resonance in the writing" (Telegraph).
A lovely ensemble piece with four great parts (married couple in their 60s/70s, their middle aged son and a live in carer in her early 20s).
