One Day When We Were Young

A story of two lovers, told over three separate moments in time, this is an honest and heartfelt look into the lives of two people and how their relationship grows and evolves. There’s a certain point in the play where a good percentage of the audience was in tears, which is a testament to the superb actors, Valorie Curry and Sam Underwood. Although the story can sometimes feel laboured and slow, the raw emotion and subtle comedy is always there to entice you back. The restricted space is used cleverly and the on-stage changeovers are beautifully choreographed to remind the audience of passing time. A story of love and heartbreak, spanning WW2 to the invention of the electronic bottle opener.

Assembly George Square Gardens, until 31 Aug.
