Sophie and Calliope have never been to school. Their mum ran away from home when she was 17 to join the New Age movement and the girls were raised in a series of ashrams, communes and impromptu raves. When Sophie gets ill, they return to Birmingham. It’s a strange new world where meditation and tree-hugging are replaced with maths homework, TV and the grandmother they have never met. Against this bewildering new backdrop, the normality she’s always longed for, Sophie must come to terms with her mortality.

An excellent script acted convincingly by all. There were many touching moments, some enhanced by appropriate musical interludes. The show flowed movingly through many emotional moments and culminated in a tear-wrenching finale/monologue. The subtle script portrayed a profound insight into the nuanced and troubled psychology which afflicts all of those affected by the ravage of cancer, within a Family environment.

Well… what can I say? This show was nothing like anything I have seen before. Mediocre at best. I am a well seasoned theatre goer and I know true theatre when I see it. The story: a predictable plot following the lives of the blasé young characters. I knew exactly what to expect; nothing but a measly school performance, but the cast worked with what they had. I advise to bring the tear rags because what I had witnessed brought moisture to my eyes, unintentionally. There’s nothing like spending £10 to attend a family gathering in a hired venue when I could be watching a man on the streets strip on stilts for free. Overall 3/10.

Notes to Future Self is a touching story of a family facing what no parent wishes to face. The company took us on a journey giving a glimpse of the pain. anger, sadness that would be felt but also the humour and compassion needed.
Well done and worth seeing (but bring the hankies).

Powerful, emotional, blunt, thought provoking…. this play and its production are simply sublime. Whilst this topic is obviously very sensitive it is still, in many parts, relatable to many who will watch it. The cast have responded brilliantly to powerful yet sensitive direction and although the space they are performing in is compact and the lighting may not be up to the standard the tech crew are used to, they make the best of it and provide a performance worthy of any stage at Edinburgh Fringe 2023.

A performance of real integrity that honours the brilliant writing of the play by Lucy Caldwell

Bravo Bath Spa, bravo
