Review this show

Overview

New York City. The late 1950's.
Two broken souls reach out to each other in an attempt to stick themselves back together again.

Jerry the brooding Nebraska lawyer has relocated to New York City to escape an unhappy marriage and meets a beatnik dancer from the Bronx, Gittel, whose life is drifting after a number of failed relationships in William Gibson’s timeless comedy drama.

Despite their very different backgrounds and personalities, this unlikely couple embark on a bittersweet and tempestuous love affair which forces them to confront, with heartfelt honesty, the very nature of who they are and want they want from love and life. Their relationship hits the rocks when their lingering ties to previous partners and the differences in their backgrounds and temperaments come to the fore.

Critic reviews

A giddly love affair lacking the high stakes of indecision

· Evening Standard

Some nicely crafted one-liners are primly delivered, particularly by a constantly engaging Bennett, but when the core pairing of the play isn't convincing, it all runs out of steam far earlier than necessary

· WhatsOnStage

An uninvolving revival of a thinly written New York comedy drama

· The Stage

This horrendously dated ‘50s romcom would have been better left buried

· Time Out
