A riveting performance, quietly poignant, yet radiating hope, anxiety, expectation, wry humour and sadness.
Emmeline Braefield gives a masterful and nuanced performance as Mel, a pressure cooker of anxiety, anger, pain and love right up to the very last – and very moving – moment

Emmeline Braefield and Pippa Meekings surpassed themselves with their portrayals…They clearly relished their roles, and that was infectious.
