Beautiful show with amazing live music and very cool video projections. I think it's both heartwarming, moving and powerful. I'd recommend going to see it!

Very touching heartfelt story about dementia performed through both wonderful performances, great storytelling and music. As someone who lost their father to this awful disease - I was slightly worried about the effect it could have on me - in fact I felt great empathy within the room which was generated by the whole audience being transfixed with the show. Great research and a compelling piece - this really is a true "Fringe Gem".

What a beautiful performance! It’s discoveries like this that make the Fringe special. Part theatre / part concert experience see two brave performers tell a story of a son losing his father to dementia in an unexpected and haunting way. Crafted expertly and presented in a unique and powerful intimate format. Highly recommend.

Static....A story that trickles like a warm trippy Jim Morrison poem into a dark colder ocean, accompanied by live original music reminiscent of an old CD by 'The Cure'

A beautifully crafted masterpiece interweaving theater, music and moving pictures. *****

Enjoyed this beautiful show, found it quite emotional. Definitely worth seeing.

This poignant piece on fatherhood and mortality was slick, tasteful and full of heart. There were moments when some of the writing felt off, and one or two of the songs were not to everybody's taste, but in spite of our small audience size, these two talented performers drew us in and kept us hooked. Recommended.
