'A soul-searching, thought-provoking, bittersweet look at dementia and family relationships... a beautifully crafted piece of theatre... tear-jerkingly powerful.' Gay Bolton, Derbyshire Times

'Powerful writing from personal experience - an honest, poignant and sobering play' Pat Ashworth, The Stage

'Tim Elgood's dialogue superbly uses both humour and empathy in this balanced and beautifully moving tale of growing old with Alzheimer's... sensitively directed by Theresa Keogh.' Susie Brighouse, Derby Telegraph

'The story itself is well crafted and imagined, and the emotions and stresses behind caring for a loved one suffering from Alzheimer's convincingly portrayed.' Dave Smith, the Public Reviews

'Dramatic structure and stage design intensify a skilfully performed reality' Timothy Ramsden, Reviewsgate

'Tim Elgood chose to pack his play with both side-splitting humour and candour so blunt it made you gulp. It's possible you might get to the end of Unforgettable without weeping but I doubt it.' Amanda Penman, Artsbeat

'Although being a serious subject, there is so much comedy, and natural comedy in this play, wonderfully and lovingly written by Tim Elgood... the four actors were mesmerising to watch' Kev Castle, Theatre Reviews Blog

'Slowly, [Jed and Rosie] draw you into their world, a world that is both banal and beautiful... Tim's gift as a writer is his ability to show that the prosaic is profound and there is an emotional intensity to the play, brought out by the fine acting and intelligent direction'. Peter Ryley, Fat Man on a Keyboard Blog
