"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

"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
